Teachers Get Extra School Supplies

Earlier this week, Alameda Education Foundation (AEF) president Bill Sonneman (left) gave teacher Michael Wong of Paden Elementary School a school-supplies gift card as part of the group’s teacher and classroom support program.

AEF presented gift cards to 54 teachers who recently joined the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) to help them purchase supplies and materials for their new classrooms.

The non-profit organization also supports teachers and classrooms with an Adopt A Classroom program, which provides $500 to teachers to be used to enhance student learning; teacher mini-grants, which provide funds for classroom projects and materials; and a school supply and instrument drive, which collects backpacks, school supplies and musical instruments to students in need.

More information on these programs and other AEF work can be found online on the group’s website.
