Thank You!

Thank you so much to those of you who shopped at local retailers through School Store! You can do that all year. We were very excited to learn about the feature that donates a gift card to your child's teacher. We had some really happy teachers that were able to go on classroom shopping sprees.


We have had a great start to the year, and wanted to keep you updated on some fun things we have gotten to do, and some upcoming things.

Charleston Wrap

Let me be honest--we didn't realize School Store sold things when we signed up to do the fundraiser--we thought we would just get a small percentage for where you shopped, and we committed to do the wonderful Charleston Wrap Fundraiser for the Fall. However, we are SO EXCITED that so many of you donated to our teacher's classrooms. Talk about an unexpected, but incredible blessing!


We LOVE Charleston Wrap--they have our favorite wrapping paper. It's great quality, and you can shop online and it delivers to you or a friend or family member's house.


However, we know that we just wrapped up what was a little more of an involved fundraiser than we expected.


Please don't feel obligated to buy something, especially if you have already done so through School Store. We are really grateful that our teachers were able to benefit so much. The aim of our fundraiser is to get some cool flexible seating options for classrooms, some classroom library books, and possibly some playground equipment.


Thank you for your support and being such an amazing community!

Why did the vampires cancel their baseball game?


Because they couldn’t find their bats.
