The Collinsville School District has had a number of teachers submit requests for classroom supplies and materials through the DonorsChoose.org website over the years, including this year! A number of teachers have been recipients of the generosity of donors.
Renfro Music Teacher Emily Thoman is no exception! Her story has a unique twist! An individual approached Channel 5 TV with an offer of $2,000 to support music programs in the Metro East through the DonorsChoose site. Emily’s request was one that was selected for support through the anonymous donor’s generous gift. On November 8, KSDK featured a story that included information about the music books that Emily was able to purchase through the funds she received. Another Missouri teacher, who was also a benefactor from the $2,000 donation was also included in the story.
We thank Channel 5 for supporting Collinsville and for running a positive story about our hard-working and deserving staff!
