“Dear Foundation Members, as one the lucky recipients of the Staples gift cards, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I had so much fun shopping and even treated myself to nice ink pens! My students now have a new supply of markers to use in class, among many other items. We teachers at McClure are so fortunate to have such wonderful, giving parents who do so much for us! It’s no wonder our students are so AWESOME! Thank you again for making a difference in my classroom!” Buffi Haggard

“Thank you so much for the gift card to Staples! What an unexpected treat! Thank you for all of the amazing support that you’ve given us in the Media Center. You’ve allowed us to impact student achievement much more than we have been able to! Thank you!” Cara Harpin

“Talk about a “Wow!” At the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year, I was one of the 25 lucky recipients to be surprised with a $30.00 Staples gift card courtesy of our wonderful McClure Middle School Foundation. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generous gift that was made possible by the Gimme 5 Campaign held the previous school year. I now have a first hand account of how the Gimme 5 donations have directly impacted my classroom, and most importantly, my students. Many teachers pay out of his/her own pocket for school supplies, and the Staples gift card was a welcomed supplement used to purchase necessary classroom supplies. My gift card was used to purchase needed expendables, such as highlighters and sticky notes. These tools will be used to teach and promote critical reading/thinking skills and aid my students with research-based strategies to become better readers.

Thank you again for all that you do to support the teachers, staff, and students at McClure Middle School. As they say, it takes a village to raise our children. Thank you for your continued support and for providing a firm foundation for our village.” Angie Fenton

“My sincere thanks to the Foundation for providing much needed supplies to the McClure Clinic.  The clinic is funded primarily by parent donations but this does not cover all of the necessary supplies used throughout each year.  The Foundation has been very helpful in providing each teacher with band aids along with numerous other items for clinic use.  Thank you to the Foundation!!” Jodie Edwards, RN
