#GivingTuesday Campaign

Frankie Lemmon School will always hold a special place in our hearts. Having a child with special needs alters a lot of things, and life can be more challenging. But having a school, and support system to help navigate those challenges makes all the difference. When Judson started at the Frankie Lemmon School he could not walk, could not talk, and was unable to feed himself independently. Judson is our WHY, he is why we work so hard to support a school that taught him all these skills, and so much more. A school that encouraged him to grow and still challenged him to work hard. Although Judson has graduated from Frankie Lemmon there are still so many families that look to the Frankie Lemmon School to help their child with special needs. During this season of Giving we would ask you to consider supporting The Frankie Lemmon School,  and all those children that need a little “extra” to learn and grow.

Frankie Lemmon School is a NAEYC accredited, 5-star child development center that welcomes children ages 2-6 with and without disabilities. Our school provides inclusive classrooms and experiences, therapies and enrichment programs, all with low student-to-teacher ratios to ensure that each child’s needs are being fully met, and offering all children a sense of belonging, and an opportunity to reach their full potential.

We strive to deliver the highest-quality early learning experiences, wraparound care, and resources to each of our children and their families. Providing this level of comprehensive education to each Frankie Lemmon student costs roughly $45,000 each year. With State and County funding providing less than 30% of the funds needed to support the school each year, we rely on generous donors like YOU to help bridge the gap.

Here is what your donation can provide:

$25 – Adapted Eating Utensils
$50 – Books for Lemmon-Lending Library
$100 – Adaptive Chair
$250 – Alternative Communication Applications
$500 – Sponsor a Parent Workshop
$1,000 – Sponsor a School Field Trip
$2,500 –  Provide a New Laptop to a Teacher
$5,000 – Sponsor Music Therapy for an Entire Semester

Every dollar is a step closer to helping the Frankie Lemmon children blossom.
