At Back to School Night on August 27, 2014, SCBC will sponsor the Stars for Teachers program. This program encourages parents to donate supplies and materials for your class. These are things that are not available in the general supply closet but would enhance your teaching experience and student learning.
When parents visit your class, they will be able to view your wish list Stars. Please take a minute at the end of your Back to School presentation to call attention to this program. SCBC has already sent a flyer in each student's registration packet so parents should already know a little about Stars. Experience in neighboring school districts has taught us that teachers who self promote their lists have the most parent participation.
Parents will be given an envelope in first period and, as they visit each classroom, they can choose to which teacher(s) they would like to donate a Star. These envelopes may be turned into any SCBC volunteer or at our table in the quad.
Please be as descriptive as possible: website, brand names, sizes, colors, etc.
You may also divide expensive items. For example, if you need 40 Waiting for Godot books, instead of asking one parent to pay $200 for the set, it may be broken into increments of 10 books for $50. Or if you need 50 scientific calculators at $10 each, break it into 10 calculators for $100. Increments are flexible and up to you. This may help parents feel the donation is not too expensive to consider. We suggest a maximum of $100 per Star.
Parents may also donate a discretionary amount for your account that you may use to buy additional items/materials or complete a set of items.
After the event, we will send you an account balance and a list of the Stars that were purchased. SCBC will hold that money in your individual account for the purchase of these items which will be delivered to your classroom as soon as we can get them there. If you choose to purchase items yourself, please submit your receipts to Win Saw and we will reimburse you from your account.
The only thing we ask in return is that you thank each donor. SCBC will provide thank you postcards. Please handwrite these notes and place in a basket in the front office. We will see that they are mailed out for you.
Feel free to contact email@example.com with any questions.
