Advocate   


Effective advocacy requires communication.  You must be able to articulate your support for laws involving educational programs and how it affects your community. Conveying your message to elected officials is not as hard as it seems.  Call your legislator, send a letter, attend a meeting or visit your legislator’s web page are just a few suggestions on how to build your relationship with your legislators.

A FEW IDEAS FOR YOUR CLUB TO KICK OFF THE SCHOOL YEAR

Please give your local schools a call BEFORE you try out one of these ideas or one of your own.  Find out what the school needs!  Don’t forget the Middle Schools!

• Donate school supplies to schools in need throughout your community. Supplies can include: notebooks, pencils, small dry erase boards and markers, a hole punch, flash drives, paper towels, Kleenex, and incentives such as stickers and small toys.
• Preschools and Head Start Programs are always in need of a variety of manipulatives such as magnetic letters, counters, and sight word games. Collect these at your first meeting in September or August with a Back to School Party theme.
• Ask your school librarian about their needs. Many times it is the school library funds that are cut from school budgets.
• Provide materials for an afterschool homework center.
• Contact the arts department chairman to see if you club can sponsor an arts project or a piece of music for the Fall or Winter concert. 
• Drop off bottles of water or Gatorade to the local marching band’s band camp.
• Treat teachers throughout the school year with these special gifts: (Don’t forget to include your club’s name phone number and how to join!.)
• A gift card to a local coffee shop that reads: “Thanks a Latte for all you do!”
• A small hand lotion bottle at the beginning of the year with a tag that reads: “Hope you have a SMOOTH year!”

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
