It’s almost back to school time! While that fact may make some parents cheer, it may also cause some teachers to wonder how they will get all the necessary materials and supplies they need for their students in time. More often than not, a lot teachers take from their already small salaries to purchase supplies for their classrooms as most district supply allowances only go so far. In school districts that struggle economically, this is even more true.
You can help though. Each and every pack of pencils or donated book can go a long way. If you want to find out which needs are most pressing you can ask teachers you know or contact your local parent teacher organization (PTO) or contact the school directly. Adoptaclassroom.org is another way to donate directly to schools, teachers and students in need.
