The Second Annual “Teacher Materials Exchange” is under way! All staff, especially those who are retiring, are encouraged to box up new or gently used classroom materials or office supplies that could benefit new Olympia School District teachers.
Items may be boxed, labeled and sent to the Knox Warehouse from school buildings between now and the last day of school. If interested in donating items over summer, email Ruth Ickert at: firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a date and time to get items to the warehouse as there is no mail pickup at schools once school has ended. The deadline to donate items for the teacher materials exchange is Friday, August 19. For specific instructions on how to label and send, as well as a list of ideas for materials to donate, view the fliers adjacent to this article (click the flier image to see a larger version that can be downloaded and printed). New teachers will receive an invitation to come to the Knox Administrative Center in August to select from these usable items for their classrooms. It will be terrific!
