Thanks everybody for the suggestions regarding the summer satchels for the 2nd graders at Alps Road Elementary. I'm back from the beach and today I'll be working the phones and following up on all the leads you've given me. I'll blog about the results; who knows, maybe somebody will want to repeat the process at another school.
I have 4.5 days to find items for- and then prepare - 80 satchels. Wish me luck!
