ELEMENTARY TEACHERS' HELP NEEDED TO PAY IT FORWARD
We are fortunate to have the opportunity to “pay it forward” to tornado-ravaged Moore, Oklahoma, but we need our elementary teachers' help to do so.
Schools there are in need of Treasures textbooks and we are making arrangements to send the materials we are no longer using. We also need to gather materials for their teachers. They are in need of 15 to 18 sets of teacher materials at each grade level, K-5. We kindly ask that Bossier Parish teachers volunteer to go to their classrooms and box Treasures teacher materials for shipment to Moore.
If you are willing to volunteer, please call Jeannette Bange at 549-6774. We will make a list of all volunteers and offer guidance on how to package the materials.
We need you. The Bossier School System received textbooks following Hurricane Katrina from a district in Virginia. Now it is our turn to pay it forward and help our neighbors in Oklahoma.
