How many parents are gearing up to get the kids back to school? Whether our children are ready or not, the first day of school is right around the corner! Time for new backpacks, new shoes, new teachers and new friends!

 

We understand how difficult it can be for parents and teachers alike to gather up supplies for the beginning of the year. Parents have to provide pencils, highlighters, pens, markers, lined paper, copy paper, bleach wipes, Kleenex, glue, binders, erasers, pencil sharpeners, spiral notebooks, the list literally goes on and on. (If you think I’m kidding, I’m not. I was using my son’s 5th grade supply list for reference.) That’s just for one child for one class. And that’s just a fraction of what the teachers provide for our kids all year long. Talk about overwhelming!

 

Many of us in our community know how underpaid and undervalued our teachers in Lake Havasu are. They make less than they should, and work 2, sometimes 3 jobs, all for the love of educating our children. I don’t know about you, but that sure means a lot to me. Without teachers, our community would have no future.

  

College Street wants to help our kids and our teachers. We will be holding a school supply drive in our restaurant until August 5th. Spread the word to help our community! Also- if you bring in a supply item you get $1 off a draft beer. So not only to you get the warm fuzzies from helping a kid, you also get your favorite College Street beer for $1 off! Sounds like a deal if you ask me!
