Help us Support Local Middle School Teachers at Totem!

Published by Alissa Newton on Wed, 31 Jul 2019 15:55

As Back to School time approaches, St. Columba's is working to support teachers at our local middle school, Totem. Each year we raise funds to give each of the teachers a thank you and a small gift card, to help with the costs of preparing their classrooms. Totem, like many area schools, is underfunded and serves a diverse population of students, many of whom live at or below the poverty line. Many teachers at Totem use their own money to purchase basic classroom supplies, and to get their rooms ready for the new school year. 

If you would like to help us raise morale and let the teachers at Totem know we see their work and are cheering them on, you can give on Sunday or click here to donate online.

We are also working to schedule a back to school breakfast for the teachers, as we have done for several years. Stay tuned for information on this - Totem is undergoing a change in principals, and we are working to connect and schedule.
