    Oh behalf of all teachers, thanks to both of you, Faye and quemaster, and to everyone who might donate to a teacher. Even if you do not know a teacher, items dropped off at any school will be put to good use.

    Great reminder, quemaster! Teachers use a lot of their own money for supplies and every parent who sends in a little extra helps out a lot.

    While I'm thankful I don't have to buy school supplies for my kids any longer, remember, don't forget to get some for your favorite teacher out there. Teachers buy supplies out of their pockets so any help you can provide would be appreciated!
