Ocean Charter Needs Your Help

I forward this on to my readers from my sister Dutz.

As many of you know, N will be starting a new school this fall. The school is opening its doors for the first time September 13th. Ocean Charter is a community of families and educators interested in using innovative teaching methods to educate and nurture children. The method espouses whole child learning which integrates arts and academics together through experiential learning. If you're interested, please check out their website.

The school relies almost entirely on parents' support. Many of the parents have now taken the reigns from the original development team to reach out to the community and ask for help. The originial development team has been working hard the past 2 years to find a site, get the charter approved by the state, hire teachers, contractors, and raise funds. There are still tons of things that the school and specifically N's classroom needs......this is where you all come in (hopefully!)

Following is a list of items we need: (no need to buy, just look through all those bags of goodies you were planning to thow out or give away!)

small book shelves
small sofa (loveseat) or futon
floor pillows
large area rug
small file cabinet
percussion instruments (drums, cymbals, rainsticks)
clip boards
children's books
jump ropes
power strips
cooking utensils
flower vases
baskets (any size)

Please forward this on to anyone you know who might be able to donate or have them contact me directly. THANKS SO MUCH in advance for your donations and time!
