Panthers Pump Up Albemarle Road Elementary

Posted by: classroomcentral in Blog, Celebrations 5 years, 5 months ago

A few weeks ago, Albemarle Road Elementary had a surprise they won’t soon forget.  The entire school was bused to Grady Cole Center for a Dr. Seuss Reading Spectacular hosted by the Carolina Panthers. As the school’s auditorium only fit 300 students and the school population was 1400, the Carolina Panthers organized buses and the rental of the arena to fit the high-energy event.  The importance of reading 20 and playing 60 (minutes per day) was emphasized through creative games and activities.   Over a dozen students were selected to participate in special games and to interact directly with players  Thomas Davis (58) and Graham Gano (9).

In all of our programs, there is one thing that is considered to be as good as gold in the classroom: copy paper.  With many teachers receiving limited supply at the beginning of each semester (we have heard 2 packs is the norm), it simply isn’t enough.  With state school supply budgets decreasing even further in 2013-2014, our region’s teachers in high needs schools rely on Classroom Central for essential items.
