Teachers First

June 22, 2017

We are beyond thrilled to unveil a NEW program that will benefit our teachers as well as our students here in Zebulon!  We are asking our businesses and our citizens to help provide supplies for our teachers.  Since this is the pilot year for this program, we are focusing on the four elementary schools here in Zebulon: 
  • Zebulon Elementary
  • Wakelon Elementary
  • East Wake Academy Elementary
  • Heritage Christian Academy Elementary
  We will be holding our "Teachers First" event on Aug 22, 2017 -the location is The Zebulon Community Center. This event will be free and open to all elementary teachers of the four schools listed above, all we ask is that the teachers register so we will know how many are coming!  We have compiled a list of supplies, and you are welcome to drop them off here at the Chamber (815 North Arendell Ave).  We will have some other drop off locations and will update them as soon as we confirm them.  We also have some special requests from the teachers that we would also love to provide for them.  Anything you can donate towards this amazing opportunity will be appreciated!  We have a lot of students and teachers in our town and we are excited to show them how much we as a community appreciate and support them!
