Our mission is to maximize the academic potential of high needs students and equalize the classroom for all students, kindergarten through 12th grade, by offering throughout the year school supplies, educational tools and incentive items necessary for successful learning. Our goal is to offer a wide variety of materials that support learning, including basic supplies like books, crayons, paper, scissors, and pencils, as well as enrichment and incentive items that teachers can use to motivate and inspire student engagement.
Tulsa teachers typically spend $500 to $1,000 out of pocket every year on students and classroom supplies, with many spending much more.
