School Supply Collection

Dear 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 2017. I’ve appreciated your generosity through Helping Hands (over 6,000 sandwiches this year!!) , 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.

Last year I was approached by a group of students with the proposal for a 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 agreed wholeheartedly with their observation, and enthusiastically supported their drive.

The students will once again begin to collect gently used school supplies to distribute to one -and possibly two- area schools.

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 tomorrow.

I extend my sincere appreciation for your help to make this drive a success for the second year.  Please discuss the giving with your child.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
