Adopt a public school teacher/room


In school districts throughout the country, times are tough. Teachers often buy supplies with their own money and spend unpaid time preparing for the year. So Peace Lutheran Church, Billings, Mont., asked the principal of nearby Highland Elementary School if it could "adopt" some teachers.

The last Saturday before school started (Aug. 24) Faith members of all ages spent the morning in eight classrooms helping the teachers get ready for the year. Will Sappington, pastor, said Peace intends to ask the teachers if they need help cleaning up at the end of the year too.
