Dear Friends and Family,
Thank you for visiting my E-Rock fundraising page!
I am proud to ride for The Rise School of Denver. This special school has made a difference in the lives of so many kids. When it opened its doors in 2003, there was one class of eight children. Today, The Rise School operates four classrooms serving approximately 50 children ranging from 12 months to six years in age, regardless of ability. All of the Lead Teachers have, or are working toward a Master's degree in Early Childhood Special Education. All children benefit from twice weekly embedded music, occupational, physical and speech therapy. The student/teacher ratios are low (3:1) and the class sizes are small (no more than 12 per class). But most importantly, children get to learn and play side-by-side with their peers in this welcoming, supportive, inclusive environment. As tuition only covers 60% of the school's operating costs, each and every dollar donated is not only greatly needed, but goes to great use in continuing the mission of this special school.
Thank you for your support of The Rise School and its mission to help ALL kids shine!
