Center School Families,
I hope as we approach the finish line this year that your child is feeling a strong sense of accomplishment and pride for his /her work. I know I feel the anticipation and energy from our community for some summer fun and relaxation.
Attached is a flyer for one final collection at Center School for 2016. I’ve appreciated your generosity through Helping Hands, Read to Care, Holiday Gift baskets, and so many other collections that have come your way. Many families benefit from our community outreach and we continue to want to grow our students as caring citizens within and beyond their community.
I was approached by a group of students with the proposal for our final collection. They call themselves the Dennis Road Crew. I was impressed with their thoughtful (and professional!) presentation, seeking my approval.
The students shared with me that many school supplies are thrown out and wasted at the end of the school year as students clean out their desks and backpacks-supplies that can benefit others. I agree wholeheartedly with their observation, and enthusiastically support their drive.
The students will begin to collect gently used school supplies to distribute to one -and possibly two- area schools. Brookings is one school that we’ll share the supplies with; and Gianna Allentuck will graciously act as our liaison.
How can you help? You can help with quality control! Please check the list on the flyer and see if your child’s supplies are in good enough condition to donate.
Boxes will be set up in each grade level hallway by Tuesday.
I extend my sincere appreciation for your help to make the drive a success. Please discuss the giving with your child. The organizers will also rally the students at an assembly this week.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
