Custer County Schools launched the Adopt-A-Class program in August 2012. The purpose of this program is to connect individual community resources with an individual teacher, class, subject and or grade level and through these connections fill unmet needs at Custer County Schools.

Several Adopt-A-Class projects:

  • Graphing calculators for middle and high school math

  • Motor kits for high school science

  • 40 Kindles e- readers for high school English

  • Books and games for Life Skills classes

  • Real Care babies for middle school health

  • Music binders for the choir

  • Document cameras for 3 classes

  • Projectors for 13 classrooms

  • Microscopes for middle school science

  • Field trip funding

  • Music for Band classes


All financial contributions to Adopt-A-Class will flow through the Excellence in Education Committee as directed donations and are considered a charitable gift through the Wet Mountain Community foundation 501©3.
