Vicki Boase , second grade teacher at Palmer Elementary, was recently surprised with the OfficeMax "A Day Made Better" award. She was nominated by Karen Myers, secretary at Palmer.
OfficeMax "A Day Made Better" is a national school advocacy campaign that works to erase teacher funded classrooms. Because teachers spend on average $1000 out-of-pocket annually on essential classroom supplies, OfficeMax and Adopt-A-Classroom founded "A Day Made Better".
Since "A Day Made Better" first began in October 2007, OfficeMax has funded more than 3,500 teachers and their classrooms on behalf of Adopt-A-Classroom.
Each classroom gift includes a digital camera, printer, swivel chair, and a large box containing essential classroom supplies totally $1000.
