As a new school year approaches, teachers are busy preparing their classrooms for the arrival of students. CUMC members recently were asked to help teachers by filling backpacks with “starter” supplies for teachers at Christ Methodist Day School, CUMC Parents Day Out, Cornerstone Prep Lester Campus, Lester Elementary, Brewster Elementary and East High School.
On Wednesday, Aug. 1, CUMC staff members delivered these Teacher Starter Packs and lunch to the teachers and staff at Cornerstone Prep Lester Campus. The remaining backpacks will be blessed during Blessing of the Backpacks on Sunday, August 5 and delivered to teachers at each school next week.
There are a number of ways you can support teachers at Cornerstone Prep Lester Campus: organize homework or make copies (7:25-8:25 a.m. or other times during the day); help with after school programs in music/art/computer (3:50-4:50 p.m.); help teachers give monthly birthday events (day/time TBD); adopt two teachers to encourage once per month (giving a gift card/note/small gift).
