DREAMER ACADEMY: New Program At Findley

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

For nearly 25 years the Des Moines “I Have A Dream” Foundation has helped students get from elementary school to high school graduation, but this year the foundation is trying something new.

Instead of adopting a class of 50 students, it’s adopting a whole school. Starting this fall all students at Findley Elementary will be a part of the Dreamer Academy.

So far the Academy has raised nearly $400,000 for the project and Thursday the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines donated $100,000 to the project. The money will go towards summer, after school, and mentor programs.
