Every year it seems like the school supplies show up in stores earlier and earlier!
That works for the School’s Cool program (managed by St. Bartholomew Church) which prepares a fully loaded backpack for each Banyan youth, Kindergarten through High School – we are already in full swing for the fall.
The most important thing that doesn’t show up on any school supply list is: Educational Desire! It is beyond any value, but success is impossible without it! School’s Cool supports and nurtures educational desire by providing the tools that Banyan kids need in order to perform in the best way possible in their classrooms. It really does make a difference that year after year Banyan kids walk into their classroom prepared and ready to go. Years and years of this add up to—GRADUATION.
