Earlier this month, kids headed back to school here in our Lake Havasu community. Telesis Prep started a new Adopt-A-Teacher program. Why? Due to budget constraints, school supplies can be scarce. Teachers report spending an average of $500 out of their own pockets each year for much needed items for their classrooms and students. Some spend thousands of dollars. Help Havasu teachers buy school supplies by donating to the program.
How Can I Help Havasu Teachers Buy School Supplies?
You read that right. Our already low paid teachers spend their own money each year to ensure that our children have the necessary materials to complete projects, papers and daily assignments. Just one more reason that these people are our everyday heroes. You can help Havasu teachers buy school supplies by donating gift cards to the Adopt-A-Teacher program. Pool your money with your friends, family and neighbors. Get your company involved. Corporate donations are also welcome.
Charter schools like Telesis receive approximately $1500 less per student then regular public schools. This further decreases funds for classroom school supplies, causing teachers to dig even deeper into their piggy banks to make up the difference. While $250 and $500 gift cards would go far in helping check off all items on a teacher’s wish list, every little bit helps. Even $5, $10 and $25 donations can add up to a sizable amount quickly. To find out more about the program and how to be a part of it, contact the Telesis Prep office during school hours at (928) 855-8661.
When you help Havasu teachers buy school supplies, you are helping our children as well. Please donate to the Adopt-A-Teacher program today.
