Academy For Discovery Now Posted On TeacherLists.com
Parents hoping to connect with their children’s teachers at P.S. 306, the Academy for Discovery in Woodhaven, have another tool at their disposal this year, as the school’s supply lists and wish lists are now posted on the free TeacherLists.com Web site. Parents can easily find exactly the supplies the kids need for back-to-school and – perhaps more importantly – the extra supplies that teachers feel would make for an even more effective classroom.
More than 20,000 teachers have already posted their lists to the justlaunched site with thousands more jumping onboard each week.
“The fact is that teachers spend nearly $500 each out of their own pockets each year on class supplies,” notes Tim Sullivan, the founder of TeacherLists.com. “As parents and community supporters, we need to do everything we can to provide teachers the support they need to inspire our kids and do their essential work most effectively. TeacherLists.com is all about providing that support.”
Besides those with list items – like paper towels, tissues and cleaning supplies – that the class can never have enough of, TeacherLists.com is also the source for those always important school supply list of required items – like glue sticks and notebooks – that can be so hard to find at this time of year. Ever find yourself frustrated at the supplies store because you forgot “the list”? TeacherLists.com is smart-phone friendly so that you or the store clerk can punch up your exact list right from the palm of your hand.
“The fundamental idea is to help parents and teachers work together even more closely,” says Sullivan. “It’s about partnership from homework to schoolwork to discipline and even to school supplies. Teachers inspire our kids, but they can only do that if the kids and the classrooms have all the supplies teachers need to do that work.”
And – thanks to the support of site sponsors Bounty and Elmer’s – teachers who post lists this year are earning free supplies just for participating. Every teacher gets free supplies just for posting a list, and the most active schools receive Super Supply Packs with more than $200 of free supplies just for taking part.
