Teacher Appreciation at Wal-mart

Teacher Appreciation Event at your Aberdeen Walmart Supercenter. Starting July 25th through July 31st we will be appreciating our local teachers with a 10% discount on Back to School purchases. This program is an added benefit for local teachers to complement the Teachers Reward Program sponsored by the Walmart Foundation and to improve our community involvement. If you have any additional questions please contact your local Walmart 910.695.1255.

*Be sure to like us on our Walmart Aberdeen Facebook page. Information about this program is also posted on our Facebook page.

* From July 25 through July 31, teachers will be able to purchase their school supplies and receive 10% cash back on an e-Gift Card of their entire purchase from stationary and crafts departments only.

How Teacher Appreciation Works:

* Teacher buys Back to School merchandise in store.

* Teacher registers online:

* Confirms they are a teacher for a local school.

* Prompts them to build their school list.

* Enters Transaction number from receipt.

* Teacher receives e-Gift Card within two weeks with 10% of their purchase amount on it.

Thank You

We are gathering STEAM...

I continue to have conversations with key people about transforming our computer lab into a STEAM lab. There is great excitement building in the community as more and more people become aware of our efforts to provide an innovative new space for students to inquire, explore, collaborate and create. I hope you are helping to build buzz as well. We are in the process of ordering new furniture. Sarah Brown is heading the painting component of the transformation process as she paints the cabinets as well as murals throughout the space. Recently, I read the article below and found it truly relevant to what we are doing with the STEAM lab. I hope you will take some time to read it and help us build interest in what we are doing. We are looking at having a ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, September 8 as we officially open our STEAM lab. We are also looking to have STEAM t-shirts made that will be distributed that week to all staff and students. It is going to be very exciting!!
