Jupiter, FL – May 2017 Pinnacle Kids (PK) recently received a donation of a Yamaha PSR 400 keyboard with stand and had to decide which of the many deserving music classrooms in our area would be the fortunate recipient. With so many worthy candidates, it was decided to offer teachers who wanted a chance to win the keyboard to enter into a drawing where PK would randomly select the winner. Ms. Sarah Hoyos from Lake Park Elementary entered her class into the drawing and was the lucky winner of the keyboard valued at $399! Our support from generous donors is a big reason why we are able to make special things like this happen.
In addition to the normal requests for basic classroom supplies from many of the Lake Park Elementary teachers surveyed, PK also received a special request for books from teacher Ms. Elizabeth Hurless. The 1st Grade teacher could not stress enough the basics of successful reading to PK founder Rob Restino. Said Hurless, “The only way you become a better reader is to practice, and when some families just don’t have the resources for books at home, the challenge becomes greater”. PK couldn’t agree more, so on top of paper, pencils, markers, journals and other materials donated to the Lake Park Elementary teachers, Pinnacle Kids was able to deliver enough books to Ms. Hurless’ class that she had enough to send a book home with each child for their very own. Students were even able to choose the book they wanted!
It’s always a pleasure to work with caring teachers like those at Lake Park Elementary who truly have their student’s best interests at heart! Pinnacle Kids is an organization that seeks to assist teachers and students in the community and to help ensure they have the tools they need for success.
