Without teacher appreciation, there can’t be any student progress. – Theresa Grimm
I taught First Grade one time many years ago.
Those kids must be close to finishing high school by now…I said it was a long time ago. I got my Bachelor’s degree, Master’s, even started the road to a Ph.D., but the madness had to end somewhere. The point is, I studied really hard before I started teaching.
Something they don’t tell you in college; besides lesson planning, grading, and storytime..you need school supplies. It takes a small village to keep a classroom well stocked up.
Sure, the school might hand some over and send you off on your way, but it will never be enough! When 14 kids all descend into one room anxious to craft, color and write at the same time…the only thing that keeps you calm is knowing you have enough supplies to go around.
Elmer’s totally gets that.
Who better to understand the needs of teachers and schools than Elmer’s! The Frugalette has become Back to School HQ. I’ve been writing for weeks telling you about all the awesome deals on school supplies and that this is the time to stock up.
Stocking up also means an opportunity to donate!
This is an absolute rock bottom price for Elmer’s glue sticks. At prices this low, I bought extra to donate to my daughter’s Kindergarten teacher. Want help with pricing? Check out my printable stock up price list to keep handy. And remember Walmart will price match!
Want a FREE way to donate school supplies? Look for the Elmer’s 1st Day App signage and QR code. Download the free 1st Day app and for every photo uploaded, Elmer’s will donate one product to the Kids in Need Foundation! There is a cap of 200,000, so let’s make sure to reach it!
Filled with supplies to donate to my daughter’s teacher. All of this came to $20 and with all the storage boxes on sale these days, I bought one for around $5. I filled it up and sealed it with a bow! She can use the storage box also, because don’t we all need more storage.
With all the excitement of Back to School shopping these are two super simple ways to make a great donation and Bag It Forward.
I’m really excited to hand over this back to school donation gift in a couple weeks. No need for a gift bag, this is present enough.
