Thank you all for your kind words and encouragement about the school. We are midway into our second week and all is well. Staff and students are working hard to build an intense and fun learning environment.
We are grateful for any and all support. If you are coming down and interested in bringing supplies, we thank you! (or, if you are willing to carry something down, but are not able to invest in any supplies, contact me and I will send some supplies your way. Just carrying things saves us lots of money). Current needs are:
good books for our library (young adult classics, literary-level contemporary novels, biographies, non-fiction, books about the ocean)
folders with brads
printer toner - Brother TN360 (this is a CONSTANT need!):http://www.amazon.com/Brother-TN360-Yiel...MSAYGG8DJFYBJ69
sports equipment (kayak paddles, soccer balls, basketballs, any sports equipment)
musical equipment (especially for our guitar/bass guitar teacher)
an answering machine
And, if you are in a position to provide tuition support, you will make a life-changing impact for the student you sponsor: www.cayecaulkerschool.com
(even $25 will go a long way as you will increase our list of sponsors, and show a strong network of support for larger grants). We are not funded by the government; we work hard to keep costs down so that any child may receive an education.
