It’s that time of the year again! Jump Start, an Alliance-sponsored program that benefits new teachers, takes place during SAISD’s Rising Star New Teacher Conference in August, 2013. The program allows new teachers to shop for free teaching materials and supplies. To make this event possible and successful, the Alliance asks that retiring teachers donate slightly used or even new teaching supplies and materials that they no longer need. Retiring teachers can give new teachers a great start to their SAISD careers! To donate, please bring items to the Alliance office at 120 Adams Street. For more information, please contact Sylvia Lovelace at 225-7174 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will arrange to have them picked up.
