Here at H.E. McCracken Middle, our hats are off to you, your staff and the volunteers of Bluffton Self Help. Community schools are grateful for the generosity shown with the delivery of an abundance of school supplies and health risk prevention items. Contributions of this magnitude make a tremendous difference in the lives of so many students throughout the school year. Students not having required school supplies are battles teachers no longer must fight. Additionally, they no longer have to spend precious instructional time calling or sending notes requesting materials.
Now, the issue of students not having school supplies is an easy fix, because school supplies are readily available, thanks to the continuous efforts and commitment of you and your dedicated staff at Bluffton Self Help. When the need arises, students are sent to the School Social Worker with a note stating their needs. Seeing the faces of students when they receive needed backpacks, pencils, spiral notebooks, 3 ring binders, loose left paper and/or composition notebooks is simply pure delight.
In addition to the generous donation of school supplies, you have taken caring to a whole new level, by graciously providing snacks! Here are just a few of the many responses received from teachers as they expressed their sincere gratitude toward the staff of Bluffton Self Help for your thoughtfulness and the kindness shown toward educators.
“Thank you so much! It is such a treat to have snacks provided to help with the very busy days of teaching but even more that the community is supporting usJ
