Graceway partners with four elementary schools in our community throughout the year: Blue Ridge, Eastwood Hills, Pitcher, and Trailwoods. We have provided meals during teacher appreciation times, several people have volunteered an hour each week to read to a student, and we have hosted multiple movie days for students. This July we’re holding a school supply drive to help teachers and students get off to a strong start when classes resume in August.

We asked teachers what supplies would best help them serve their students. From crayons to tissues to uniforms, we have compiled a list of the items teachers feel will give them a great head start to the school year. See a complete list here.

Without our help many students will not have basic supplies like folders or pencils – and teachers will use their personal money to create an inviting learning environment for these children. Bins will be available in the Graceway lobby throughout July to collect supplies.

Together we can help each teacher and student have a fantastic school year!
