• Beginning with the 2015-2016 school year, a collaborative effort began. The idea for a teacher supply warehouse was born in Rockingham Leadership Academy. In July of 2016, Rockingham County Schools and Rockingham County Education Foundation joined forces with Johnson Control in efforts to support the start up of this project. For the background on this idea, click here to view the PowerPoint showing the vision and intent for this project.  Each year before the beginning of school, Johnson Control along with Rockingham County Schools collects school supplies through a "Stuff the Bus" campaign.  A bus is parked at each Walmart location in the county as a collection site for two consecutive days.  This community based project has been hugely successful due to your support.  The donated school supplies are used to help teachers supply their classes with materials that students may need on a daily basis.  We keep an organized list of the most used student supplies.  Please click here to view the most requested supply items.  In addition to new supplies, if you have gently used children's books, office supplies, copy paper or other items that you are willing to donate to the warehouse, we'd be happy to accept them.  Please contact Angela Martin at amartin2@rock.k12.nc.us to arrange a drop off time.  In addition to items, monetary donations are always welcome.  The Rockingham County Education Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization, has agreed to manage donations for this project.   Please mail donations/checks to:  The Rockingham County Education Foundation at 124 South Scales Street, Reidsville, N.C. 27320 and designate on the check that the funds are for the RCS-The Rock Shop.  All dollars donated will go towards the Teacher Supply Warehouse- or as we have named it "The Rock Shop!" 

     Thank you Rockingham County for your support.....YOU ROCK!
