One of the teachers, Jennifer McFarlane, who shops at our teacher resource store, has embodied the idea of pay it forward with her students. She uses local serving opportunities to create incentives for her students to complete all homework and classwork on time. She tracks students with 100% returned homework and offers them monthly opportunities to serve with her at homeless shelters in Downtown Grand Rapids, MI. These students work extra hard to have the privilege to serve others.
At the StoreHouse this is what we support. We want other organizations, schools, and individuals to look for ways to promote more pay it forward activities within their sphere of influence. Thank you Jennifer for what you are doing to promote these awesome opportunities with your students.
