Home Moravian provides tutoring, teacher assistance, end-of-year celebrations, testing proctors, library assistance, gifts for parents and teachers, and much more, for Diggs-Latham Elementary, a public school of the Winston-Salem Forsyth County System and a magnet school specializing in Arts and World Studies. We have been blessed to be in partnership with the school for more than 12 years.
For two years, COVID has kept us from being onsite at Diggs-Latham. This month we are renewing our support with the following activities:
School Supplies: We are collecting clear protective sheets, markers, scissors, two-pocket folders, small whiteboards with markers and erasers, and any other school supplies you would like to donate. Collecting October 9–19. Containers will be in the sanctuary vestibule, church office area, and fellowship hall.
Gift Cards: Again this year we will present gift cards ($50 value) to teachers to help with classroom purchases. $2000 is needed. Checks may be sent to the church designated for DL Teachers.
“Holiday Store” items: At the holiday store, children can choose gifts for their parents. We are collecting items that children would enjoy giving to a parent and can carry on a school bus. New or gently used scarves, gloves, jewelry, and Christmas items are popular. Collecting now through November 6. Vestibule, office area and fellowship hall will be areas for collection.
Our schools and our teachers are important! Your support is essential! Call the church office to be put in touch with someone who can tell you more about how to help. Thank you!
