Gift Kit Helps Kids

Jan Cowan, program facilitator at Gompers Elementary School, suggests a holiday gift idea that could contribute to better grades: a Homework Survival Kit. The kit helps students stay focused on the task. Items to place in a decorated shoe box are assignment book, pens, tape, glue or paste, colored pencils, index cards, almanac, calculator, writing paper, erasers, hole punch, ruler, paper clips, dictionary, rubber bands, protractor, pencils, markers, scissors, stapler, atlas, compass and thesaurus.
