Back to School Supplies Drive for Teachers
Along with neighborhood businesses and local elected officials, we are collecting school supplies for local teachers again this year!
Several years ago, we learned that supplies quickly run short at the beginning of the year. As students use up their own supplies, teachers dig into their own pockets to replenish the supplies. This year's supplies drive benefits teachers at Hogg, Peeler, Reagan and Rosemont Elementary Schools and at Garcia Middle School.
The Centers For Disease Control (CDC) has released some guidelines for how to reopen schools this fall. Among the recommendations is to provide enough supplies so that students do not have to share. It will be even more important for there to be plenty of supplies and materials to help keep staff and students safe.
Here are the materials we are collecting:
- Markers - 100 packs
- Dry Erase Marker - 75 packs
- Facial tissue - 300 boxes
- Pencil erasers - 75
- Folders with pockets - 300
- Colored pencils - 100 packs
- Ink pens - 100 packs
- Red ink pens - 100 packs
- Loose leaf notebook paper - 100 packs
- Mesh backpacks - 100
- Index cards (multicolor) - 300 packs
- Hand sanitizer 32 oz. size - 250 bottles
- Ear buds - 50
