Throughout Colorado, next Tuesday is a special day dedicated to giving back. From bringing joy to students through a new play space, to building outdoor learning labs designed with social distancing in mind, your gift today will benefit our students for years to come.
Help us dream big.
While our students and staff have been hard at work on their academics and learning expeditions, DAC has been working with outstanding partners in outdoor education and play space designs to dream big. Our approach, which will be revealed in just a few days, focuses on the principles RMSEL values and encourages. You’ll see:
  • Innovative outdoor learning labs that can safely host four cohorts simultaneously
  • A flowing playground layout with areas for all age groups (K-12)
  • Spaces that foster imaginative and cooperative play
  • Elements designed to support gross motor development
  • Exercise areas that connect with RMSEL’s fitness program
  • Reflection zones for students that need a quiet space
Please support RMSEL and encourage others to do the same.
Redesigning our entire outdoor space is a huge project, and we know that we can’t do it alone. That’s why DAC is working on grant opportunities and identifying corporate sponsors that may be able to help. We also recognize those things will take time, and we will be competing against many schools with similar needs. That’s why we are asking for your help.
There are many ways to give:
  • Make a one-time donation on Colorado Gives Day
  • Set up a recurring (monthly) donation through
  • Encourage extended family members to donate
  • Suggest corporate sponsorship to companies you work for or stores you visit

Take advantage of charitable giving under the CARES Act.
For taxpayers who take the standard deduction, the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act created an above-the-line deduction of up to $300 for cash donations made in 2020. For taxpayers who itemize, the deduction limit for charitable donations was increased.
Thank you from the entire RMSEL Crew.
