Hi All –

Finally found a few minutes to sit down and write an update on all the happenings around here with  Like you, we’re entering the busiest part of the back-to-school year with lots going on.  Hard to believe, but we already have more than 20,000 lists posted to the site representing more than 50,000 different classrooms.   We like to think of that as tons of teachers and kids in classrooms with the supplies they need to thrive.  More news below:

Teacher and School Rewards

Our second shipment of rewards hit the mail just this week with several thousand teachers and schools receiving free Elmer’s glue sticks, Bounty paper towels, Puffs facial tissues, Avery-Dennison page dividers or Mr. Clean’s NEW Select-A-Size Magic Eraser.  We also had our first schools earn their Super School Supply Packs with hundreds of dollars of free tools and supplies.  Check out how they are using on our Facebook Page:

Coxsackie   Elementary, Coxsackie, NY
St. Mary’s Elementary School, Bellevue, NE
Plattsmouth Elementary School,   Plattsmouth, NE
Deltona Middle School, Deltona, FL
Indian Hill Elem, Grand Blanc, MI
Pewitt Junior High School, Omaha, TX
Caldwell Elementary, McKinney Tx
Nolachuckey Elementary, Greeneville, TN

Can’t wait to help your school get in on the supplies.


Site Updates

Our technology team remains busy making the site even better for you each week.  Nearly all of the changes come from your feedback.  (Keep it coming!)  The best way to see all of the changes is to use the site —  post lists, share lists and find lists – but we can give you a few highlights, like

  • Item quantity field extended – need 200 stickers? Now you can request them!
  • Improved school search – just enter your zip code to find the right school!
  • New Specialty Teacher Resources lists – requests items like bulletin board supplies and curriculum materials – parents can order right online!

Coming Next

We’ll have lots more news for you in the coming weeks, including a new sponsor (like all of our sponsors they will be providing free supplies as part of our rewards program) and a “Tell-a-Teacher” referral rewards program that will help teachers earn even more free supplies.  Details to come.   If you want to be the first to know, “like” us on Facebook for immediate updates.

In the meantime, please let us know how we can help you further.  And please be sure to share your lists far and wide so we all can make that teacher-parent connection.  Email your lists.  Add a link to your school or class websites or Facebook pages.  We even have teachers tweeting their lists on Twitter. Very cool.
