This is a donation page for people to send gift cards for our teachers to be able to make their classrooms a home once again for our kids!
Hi! My name is Stefanie, I currently have a 4th grader who attends James Monroe Elementary School and another daughter who graduated last year. My Brother, Sister and I all went there as well. In 2011 we had a devastating fire claim everything we owned. After James Monroe Principal Lynda Zapoticzny and Teachers didn't hesitate to step up and help get my family back on our feet with their donations and generosity. We were overwhelmed with gratitude to these amazing people. Now its our turn to give back so let me first start off by saying that James Monroe Elementary School in Edison, NJ is so much more than just a school, it is a home away from home for the teachers, staff and students. It is the bedrock of the community that teaches so much more than reading, writing and arithmetic. The teachers have taught our children how to be smart, caring, empathetic and well rounded. To these teachers that spend over 40 hours a week with our children and so much money from their own pockets to help shape our kids to the amazing individuals that they are, and continue to grow into, this page is for you. We are here to help re-build the classrooms that you have made a home for our kids. We know that you lost a great deal in this horrific ordeal and this page is set up so people can donate gift cards for you to make your classrooms whole again.
