Dissection Lab for all 7th graders!

MRS. SHAH is asking parents and friends to help donate to her DonorsChoose request for a DISSECTING LAB

Currently, only students taking the Science Exploration Elective get to do dissections and they've been using inadequate tools and old cafeteria trays.  With your support, all 7th graders would get to dissect frogs with complete tools and padded dissecting trays with lids (so they can work on their specimen for more than 1 day).

If you donate by February 20, YOUR DONATION WILL BE DOUBLED when you enter the match code "INSPIRE" during checkout.  

You can help Portola Magnet get a real Dissection Lab for current and future students.  Please chip in however much you can at:


Also, Big Thanks to volunteer Denise Schall (Ben's mom) for researching and posting this on DonorsChoose.
