‘Twas the week before finals and all through the school not a supply could be found, not even a spool (of string). The backpacks were hung in the lockers with care in hopes that just someone would be aware.  When what to our wondering eyes should appear, but a caring group of full of cheer!  Buckets and bags filled with all kinds of things that will help our students learn until spring.   The teachers’ eyes – how they twinkled!  Their smiles – how they shined!  Exclamations of joy – what a blissful state of mind!  The best holiday gift EVER and you are the reason!  Many thanks to you all and to all a joyful season. 

WOTM school supply donations—you are the virtuosity of generosity!!!

Each year students and teachers come to school eager to learn but don’t always have the supplies needed to keep them on the path for success.  As a district, the Rockford Public Schools face rising numbers of families living at or near the poverty line.  Your donation of school supplies helps students worry less about what they don’t have allowing them to spend more energy focused on learning and growing into future leaders in our community.  Thank you so much for thinking of our students this holiday season.
