Mermaid Schools

Mermaid schools are in session. No, we’re not talking about pods of Mermaids in the ocean (they’re everywhere, though…). We’re talking about the schools, teachers, and classrooms Mermaid Cottages has adopted for this school year. Head Mermaid Diane got schooled recently when she learned over 96% of teachers provide school supplies with their own money so their students aren’t left out. In fact, most teachers spend over $750 of their own money each school year. With these facts in hand, Diane rallied our team to adopt some local schools with teachers, classrooms, and students who need help. Teachers are working harder than ever to help students catch up and excel. We’re doing our part to help. These teachers are teaching us how to be better helpers, too.

Wow!  Thank you much for your donation!  I plan on using the donation to order science exploratory materials for our fifth graders!  The hands-on aspect is so important for developing life-long learners!  They will enjoy them!
Thank you!

I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤️. On behalf of my students and myself, it means so much to have donors who care about the children in their communities!!! This is my first ever classroom donation of this magnitude and I’m literally in tears. Thank you, thank you, and thank you again!!!!!

This was an incredible surprise! I am so honored and blessed to receive such a generous donation to my classroom. My students will be able to explore and experiment this year in art like I never would have imagined. I’m excited to make paper, do printmaking and textile arts, and thrilled to see what my students can create. Again, a simple thank you is not enough. I am so so so grateful for you. 
Thanks,

We also want to thank our guests, as well. Each time you stay with Mermaid Cottages, a portion of your rental goes towards our teacher support program. We hope you’ll be inspired to look for ways to adopt and sponsor teachers, classrooms, and students where you live, too. Mermaid schools are in session. Let’s all get educated on how we can make a difference!
