School Days, School Days

Okay, maybe it's because I'm a teacher that I've always loved the start of the school year. New pencils, sharp, bright crayons, notebooks filled with empty sheets of paper. . .sigh. I could lose myself at Staples this time of year, strolling the aisles.

Enough of my reveries, though. Children at the Charles Murphy school in Pearlington need supplies to get off to a good start this semester. The school itself was decimated during the hurricane, and what remains are the students, the faculty, volunteers and a good measure of determination to make things as normal as possible for the children.

Here's a link to a list of supplies the students will need.

In an earlier post, Sharon suggested that you contact Laurie Spaschak at Pearl Mart for more information:

I've just sent her an email and hope that we can get back to you all with more information as the day moves on.
