As a church we have adopted McAuliffe Elementary school. We brought baskets to their families in need at Turkey Blitz and gave gift cards to the teachers and administration at Christmas. We asked Anna Arndt, our liaison and teacher, Sanctuary member and all around awesome person to ask the teachers what needs they have in the classrooms right now. The list is below. If you feel led to help with any of these items, please bring them any Sunday between now and Easter. We will make sure they are delivered to the school. If you prefer to give money instead, please let us know and we will purchase the items that they need. We may not be able to change the whole school system right now, but we can make a difference at this school! Thanks for your generosity!
For more information, please contact Pastor Janis Sharpe (firstname.lastname@example.org).
General classroom needs:
· Glue sticks
· Dry erase markers
· Wide-ruled spiral notebooks
· Hand-held sharpeners – only two grade levels said they would like these
(Almost every teacher said that glue sticks and dry erase markers were on the top of their lists)
Miscellaneous needs according to grade level:
· Pre-K – Crayola color paints
· Kinder – 5 kid-friendly staplers, skinny markers, teacher scissors
· 3rd – (only if possible) one of the teachers said that a student of hers who has some issues at home will get to “recover” and take a little power nap during the day if they need it. But they end up sleeping on the ground. If it would be possible to get a little mat or something to that effect, they would be pretty happy!
