Support E-learning Accessibility

Beveridge Special Education

Sarah White is a special education teacher at Beveridge Middle School. She would like to provide tools for success for the 7th grade students in special education. With the struggles that come with online learning as well as their needs in special education, Sarah would like to make school as stress free as possible. She feels that there are supplies and tools she could provide for her students that would alleviate some of their stress and help them to be more successful in the classroom. These tools would benefit the students in the areas of their IEP goals as well as in their general  education classes.

Overcoming the physical location and access issues in terms of attainment of learning goes only partway to a solution for fully inclusive education options for disabled learners, but it is an incomplete progression if the digital web interface is itself not accessible. Please help Sarah achieve her goal of providing these important tools to her students.

Sarah’s Goal is to raise $6250.00

$3000.00 will buy 30 ipad styluses.
$1700 will buy 30 ipad keyboards.
$640 will buy 30 headphones.
$120 will buy 30 ipad chargers.
$80 will buy calculators.
$50 will buy additional tools to make accessibilty a reality.

Lewis & Clark Direct Giving Campaign

Bucks for Blazers Lewis & Clark Middle School

HELLO Lewis & Clark Middle School Families,

Every fall Lewis & Clark Blazer Club PTO holds our Annual Direct Giving Campaign BUCKS FOR BLAZERS.  We all know that this year is year like no other, and although our students are not physically in school yet, we still want to support our teachers and staff and plan for the possible return of our students.

This fall the PTO’s primary focus is supporting our teachers and staff as they put their hearts and, many times, their personal dollars into remote learning. We would like to do what we can to give back to each of them during these crazy, unprecedented times.

ALL money raised during this campaign will DIRECTLY SUPPORT our teachers, staff and students.

  • Our PRIMARY FALL goal is to gift every teacher $50 and every staff member $25 each, to use for classroom supplies/equipment, innovative teaching materials, etc. to support remote learning.
  • Additional Goals:
    • Continue to fund annual PTO sponsored events such as staff conference dinners, student attendance incentives, teacher appreciation week, etc.
    • Fund Student Scholarships for Lewis & Clark Middle School Alumni

Any donation amount is appreciated – $5, $10, $15 – it all adds up! Your donation is 100% Tax Deductible.

You may also send cash/check payable to:

Lewis & Clark Blazer Club

6901 Burt St., Omaha, NE  68132

Please consider forwarding the link to this page (https://omahapublicschoolsfoundation.org/lewis-clark-pto-2020/ )to family, friends, neighbors and employers and ask them to donate and support Lewis & Clark Middle School as well.

Thank you for continuing to support our Blazer teachers, staff and students!

McMillan STEM Magnet School’s Direct Giving Campaign

McMillan Matters is McMillan’s annual direct giving campaign.  This year’s goal is $3,600. We can reach this goal with YOUR help!

McMillan students and staff are the DIRECT beneficiaries of your donations:

  • Prizes for “Students of the Month”
  • $500 given to a scholarship fund for a McMillan alum
  • Staff meals during parent teacher conferences
  • Gifts for Teacher Appreciation Week, and MUCH MORE!

These programs NEED your donation, as there are no district or tax dollars available to sponsor them.   McMillan’s kids, teachers, and staff deserve your investment.

Support COBAL Baseball

COLBA baseball needs your help!

Central Omaha Legion Baseball Association (COLBA) is the only high school baseball program in downtown Omaha. Our players primarily attend Omaha Central High, an urban school with a diverse population of nearly 2700 students. Our mission is to provide summer baseball opportunities to inner-city youth, while educating them on the importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and athleticism.

As an inner-city baseball program, our players come from diverse financial backgrounds. In planning for the upcoming season, we recognize that some players cannot afford their registration fees.

To support these players and to give their families some relief during this difficult time, we are asking for donations to provide need-based scholarships for the 2020 season.

This program fund is administered by the Omaha Public Schools Foundation. 100% of your donation is given to COLBA to fulfill their mission.

Dundee Direct

Dundee PTO Direct LogoFirst, a big thank you! Dundee Elementary thrives because of its amazing students, staff, and families!

It’s time for Dundee Direct again! If you’re new to Dundee Elementary, Dundee Direct is the PTO’s ONLY fundraiser each year. Instead of asking you to buy wrapping paper or popcorn or other stuff that you don’t want or need, make a donation directly to the Dundee Elementary PTO and we get to keep 100% of the funds raised. That’s right, 100%!

The PTO uses the money raised to make sure our school stays amazing for all of our children. In the past, money raised funded the purchase of computers for the classrooms and books for the library. It funded classroom parties and cleaning up the playground and landscaping. But most of the money raised went directly to the teachers, who bought things like educational games, classroom supplies, and innovative new teachings material used daily by the students.

Every child and teacher at Dundee Elementary directly benefits from the money raised by Dundee Direct. If we reach our goal this year, Mrs. Kennedy will kiss a pig in front of the whole school!

Be a Burke Softball Booster


Coach Sturgeon has helped grow the Burke High School Softball program in the last 3 years. In 2018 the team went to the state tournament for the first time in 13 years. When he first arrived the team was using old soccer jerseys and there were no team helmets and some players did not have their own. Field improvements have been made and equipment has been purchased as most of the equipment was very old.

In order to continue our progress and grow our program, we are hoping to raise $5000. Eagle Mortgage Company will match donations up to $2500. The money will go to the Burke softball booster club. The money will be used help the Burke Bulldog softball team as they continue to build a top softball program. The contributions will help to improve and maintain the softball field, provide apparel for the team and support the players as they compete at a high level.

As you can see our efforts have really paid dividends to our program, but to continue we can’t do it without all of you and your support. We look forward to growing and developing our young female athletes to become productive, strong women in the future.
