Back To School

Congratulations to all of the students who are heading back to school!

Each year the Marianas Office of MLSC sponsors a "Back To School Project." MLSC collects donations in cash and in-kind from local attorneys (and anyone else who wants to donate) and then distributes school supplies to needy children in grades one through 12.

You can read more about it at the DAY IN COURT blog.

A GREAT BIG THANK YOU goes out to you and your staff, and the few who have donated, those much needed supplies for the benefit of the CNMI children!!

After Katrina, some youth in Houston took up collecting backpacks with school supplies to help out the many kids who escaped their flooded cities and who would be attending schools in the HUSD. I sent a backpack to an imagined 10th or 11th grader, complete with information about planning for college.

The next summer I became friends with an elementary school teacher who for some of her students has to supply pencils, pens, and paper. This isn't stuff the school district can provide so she has paid for it out of her own pocket. Since we met, each September I've purchased a gross of pens, a gross of pencils, and a ream of paper and given them to her for her students.

It's amazing how much how teachers contribute out of their own pockets. I don't know any teacher who doesn't cover for basic supplies at times.
