The following is a guest blog post by Peg Bania.
Summer break is approaching and while many have visions of pool days and vacations on the brain, there are also great activities that can be done to exercise kids’ philanthropic interests over the break. After hearing from many parents that they had a desire to get their teens and younger kids involved in philanthropy, Classroom Central developed a Student Ambassador program.
As we begin the final month of the school year, we’d like to celebrate the hardworking individuals responsible for our educating students. During the first week of May, Classroom Central celebrates #TeacherAppreciationWeek! We do this through a number of social media posts and events that take place.
We recently published our Belief Statement. We hope that this helps share a bit more about the need that exists in our region and our beliefs around education.
April is a special month for Classroom Central. It is the time when we give thanks to all the dedicated volunteers who make what we do possible. This past year, we had a total of 1,265 volunteers which clocked in almost 11,000 volunteer hours. Fun fact: The gift of our volunteers’ time is estimated at over $250,000 in value to Classroom Central!
