Dear Teachers and Assessment Specialists,                                                    September 26, 2018

Christmas is just around the corner and Be An Angel would like to provide the special needs students, including the hearing impaired, from low income families in your school with holiday gifts. These gifts are made possible through the generosity of thousands of donors and volunteers within our community.

You have been selected by your district's special education department for participation in this program. Registration of students will begin 8am, October 1st and continue until 3pm, October 26th or until the registration allocation for your district is filled. The person who registers children will have the ability to make changes to registrations up until 3:00pm on the 26th. The children we are targeting are special needs including deaf ed students and come from families that are the most economically challenged in the district. Those students eligible for the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program may be a good starting point for qualification. Students must be enrolled in an Autistic, Life-skills, MI, MI/VI, PPCD or Deaf Education Program.
Students classified as Emotionally Disturbed or Learning Disabled only do not qualify. (They must have additional handicapping conditions).

Below you will find instructions for the easy step-by-step process to register your children. When each "Gift Form" is completed, an acknowledgement email will be sent immediately to the email address you provide on the form.
If you do not receive a confirmation email for each child they are NOT registered.
