Even though we’re in a summer state of mind, ‘back to school’ season will be here soon! As you may know, school budgets across the country are being cut, and a recent Bounty survey found that 71% of teachers report bringing cleaning and learning supplies from home, and are each spending an average of $462 a year for their classrooms out of their own pockets.
So, what can parents do to help ease teachers’ financial burdens?
School Family Media is partnering with Bounty to launch TeacherWishList.com, a new, free service that provides an opportunity for parents to give teachers in their communities the essential supplies they need for the classroom.
TeacherWishlist.com launches this week – just in time for back-to-school - and now teachers can easily customize and share their class supply wish lists with a few simple clicks. Those who register will be eligible for:
· The chance to win one of 100 $462 school supply grants from Bounty
· The chance to win a $25,000 art classroom makeover (for schools with five + registered teachers)
· Bounty coupons by mail
To find out more about TeacherWishList.com and to check out the engaging chatter about teachers’ spending visit www.Facebook.com/Bounty.
Please contact Kelsey Bailey at MSL if you have any questions about TeacherWishList.com or would like additional registration information to share with teachers in your community.
She can be reached at Kelsey.Bailey@mslgroup.com or 646-557-7287.
