BACK-TO-SCHOOL SUPPLIES NEEDED
FOR SEPTEMBER 8TH
We want to give school supplies to each kid who attends the September 8th clubs.
If you happen to have the following laying around (or want to
pick some up at back-to-school sales), these are the
specific items we are looking for:
Colorful 2-pocket folders
3-ring pencil pouches
Stores such as Office Depot, Staples, and Target are promoting
great back-to-school specials. If you're going to be there
anyway, why not pick up a folder or ten for the kids?
email@example.com or call us at (310) 479-7455 if you
have any supplies to donate. September is always a fun month,
and made much more so with the giveaways!

Over the next several weeks you can help at
Kindergarten Orientations, Teacher Breakfast Deliveries, and
We'll supply everything you need, including what to say at the Kindergarten Orientations. Although it's great if you can speak Spanish (even a little), all of our parent materials are bilingual, and there's always someone who can translate for you at the school.
Our Ambassadors always have a great time with the
kids and parents - come find out why!
If you can be an Ambassador, please e-mail us at
