“We are very fortunate and blessed that you have chosen us” for the donations, said Laurie Namey, principal at Magnolia Middle School. ”We make magic happen every day, but sometimes our resources are limited. So, this is a gift that will continue to help us open up more doors and opportunities to our students.”

The school supply kits include pens, pencils, markers, dry erase markers, earbuds, wipes and more. Teachers also received $150 each to purchase supplies for the school year.
