Teachers to receive free school supplies Saturday

Ninety-two percent of public school teachers spend, on average, $475 on classroom materials for their students, according to the National Education Association’s (NEA) research department.

Staples office store is hosting a Teacher Appreciation Day Saturday at locations nationwide to help offset these costs, including in South Lake Tahoe at 2061 Lake Tahoe Blvd.

“Every year, teachers selflessly continue to reach into their own pockets to pay for supplies to keep their classrooms stocked throughout the school year,” said Demos Parneros, president of U.S. stores for Staples, Inc.

“As part of our continued dedication to teachers, Teacher Appreciation Day is our way of thanking them for the work they do each day and to make it easy for them to get the supplies they need to do their job.”

The first 100 teachers visiting Staples stores from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday will receive an Avery Binder filled with paper, a pencil pouch and supplies. Teachers will also have the opportunity to preview new products and services at Staples. New this year, Staples is offering teachers a special copy and print promotion throughout the back-to-school season of 5 cent black and white copies of classroom materials.

Staples Rewards Teacher, redesigned in 2010 and part of Staples Rewards program, gives teachers 10 percent back in rewards on teaching and art supplies. Staples Rewards Teacher members also get 10 percent back in rewards on ink, toner and ream paper, copy and print purchases and free delivery on all orders of $50 or more on staples.com. Teachers can also recycle ink and toner cartridges at any Staples store and receive $2 back in Rewards for each cartridge (limit 10 cartridges per month). Teachers may enroll in the program at any Staples store or online at http://www.staplesrewards.com.
