This year, we are continuing the foundation’s tradition of helping our Ada teachers. As you may remember, in 2015 we embarked on a new program called “Supplying Success.” Last August, through generous support from donors like you, we were able to award $100 Staples gift cards to every full time classroom and special needs teacher in the Ada City School System. This helped provide much needed supplies for our students within the classroom. A $100 gift card to Staples may sound like a modest gift, but to most of these teachers, it is the difference between having basic supplies to educate our children and having to forego an important tool in their teaching arsenal. And as most of us know- so many teachers use their own paycheck to buy much needed school supplies. An added perk to this program is that each purchase a teacher makes on this card was tax free.

With further state funding cuts upon us for the 2016-17 school year, there will be an even heavier burden on our Ada teachers. Providing these gift cards once again is truly a necessity.

Our goal is to have $30,000 raised by July 1st so that we can continue this tradition in August of this year (of course, the more we raise, the more we can give). Again- we cannot thank you enough for your support over the years and hope you will continue aiding in efforts to “supply success” to our Ada teachers and students.
