Congratulations to the Teachers at Virgin Valley Elementary School at
200 Woodbury Lane Mesquite, 89027.
28 Teachers registered for AdoptAClassroom.
Each of the 28 teachers will receive $500.00 toward their classroom needs for a total grant of $14,000.00.
Teachers need help now more than ever.
K-12 teachers spend $600 a year of their own money on classroom supplies. AdoptAClassroom.org helps offset these costs by funding the classroom materials that students need to learn and succeed.
91% of teachers purchase school supplies for their students. Unfortunately, this has become the norm.
That’s because most states are providing less support for K-12 schools than ever before. And over half of public school students are low-income.
Currently, this gap is being filled by teachers themselves, with 60% of all classroom supplies being purchased by teachers out of their own pockets.
This leaves a big resource gap in many classrooms. Kids just aren’t getting the materials they need to learn.
That’s why our mission (at AdoptAClassroom) is to give teachers a hand and provide needed classroom materials so their students can succeed.
I encourage you to go to their website and see if teachers in your area are registered, and that you too will help support a classroom in your community.
