School Supplies

It appears that stores in the States have started their annual "Back to School" sales. If you are planning to come to Haiti to serve with MTM during the next year or so, I'd like to encourage you to consider picking up a few school supplies for our students while they're on sale this summer. We try to do a supply distribution at the beginning of the school year and at the end of each trimester just before exams begin.

Here's a prioritized list of what we currently need:

  1. blue pens--virtually out at the end of the '11-'12 school year (I cannot emphasize enough the importance of a Haitian student having a blue pen.)
  2. pencils
  3. pencil sharpeners
  4. erasers--pencil top or hand held are both fine
  5. black and red pens
  6. tempura paint for the preschool
Other useful items:
  • rulers
  • scissors
  • staplers (for the principals and teachers)
  • colored pencils
  • markers
  • highlighters
  • small packs of crayons
  • French-English dictionaries
  • French-Spanish dictionaries 
  • craft supplies (glitter, pompoms, yarn, etc.)
Things we currently have in good supply (ie: not needed at this time):
  • paperclips
  • index cards
  • notebooks and loose leaf paper
  • coloring books
Merci d'avance!!
Thanks in advance!!
