Teacher Supply Depot Members-Only Shopping Day Rescheduled

On Thursday, March 26, 4-6 p.m., a special shopping day at the Teacher Supply Depot will be offered to members of the Teacher Supply Depot PTA. This members-only shopping day was originally scheduled for Feb. 26 but was cancelled due to inclement weather and the influx of several large donations.

All educators who are members of the Teacher Supply Depot PTA are invited to shop during this exclusive members-only shopping day on March 26. Information about the special day has been sent by the PTA to the e-mail addresses members provided when they joined. The members-only shopping event applies only to membership in the Teacher Supply Depot PTA, and members will need to present their membership cards or shopping-day invitations to be admitted.

Please note that two or more members of the Knox County Board of Education may be present.

Teacher Supply Depot PTA membership dues are $10. To join, visit www.teachersupplydepot.org. For more information, contact the depot at 470-0750. The membership application also is available at the Knox County Schools’ online employee bulletin board.

Located at 709 N. Cedar Bluff Rd. in the former Cedar Bluff Intermediate School, the Teacher Supply Depot provides Knox County educators with a variety of new and used classroom materials at no charge. In its 13 years of service, the Teacher Supply Depot has benefited more than 10,000 Knox County Schools’ professionals and has provided an estimated $2.6 million worth of materials made possible through the support of local businesses and community members. Since the depot is driven solely by donations, it is a unique way for local businesses and community members to partner with the school system to provide material support to teachers. All donated materials are used to enhance instruction and promote student achievement in the classroom.
