Support IDS

Teacher Appreciation

Thank you for considering a gift to honor our teachers during our first-ever Teacher Appreciation Week of Giving, taking place May 4-8. This is not only a wonderful way to show your gratitude, but also supports programming and ongoing efforts so these fabulous educators can continue to remain fearless in their teaching. 
"We want to thank all the IDS teachers, for the great job you are doing tele-teaching. I am still working full time (from home) and my husband is also working almost full hours (partially from home) and it is a great relief for us not having the extra job of home-schooling in addition to everything else we are worried about. We were convinced a long time ago that IDS would give our child a better education compared to public school, but we think the difference is even more pronounced now. THANK YOU!"

"I have never been more impressed with how smoothly, how amazing these teachers taught their lessons, answered questions, and somehow dealt with a class of 10 who sometimes didn't want to mute their mics.  We rolled through the schedule so easily and even I was kinda enthralled with Mr. Lowry's live, in real time science lesson and experiment about matter. The enthusiasm, the dedication, and the love that these teachers still put into their lessons was undeniably from the heart. These educators are part of our ESSENTIAL workers."
