Honoring the best

. February 18, 2013.

For teachers in today’s economic climate, it can be a constant struggle to keep their classrooms properly supplied. Office Max has teamed up with non-profit Adopt-A-Classroom to help make one outstanding teacher’s life a little easier. This year, the Office Max store on Alexis Rd. recognizes Roxanne Ward, a third-grade teacher at Meadowvale Elementary, as part of its “A Day Made Better” program. Each Office Max store is able to choose one teacher in their area to reward with a framed certificate, an office chair, and a generous box of classroom supplies. Now in its fourth year, the “Day Made Better” program has already honored some 3000 teachers nationwide with $3 million dollars worth of school supplies.
