Wilson’s World: May the Fourth Be With You at Classroom Central

Wilson and Classroom Central celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week and Stars Wars Day.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Wilson fit right in this morning dressed in his favorite Star Wars shirt and carrying his lightsaber when he stopped in at Classroom Central to celebrate May the Fourth Be With You and Teacher Appreciation Week.

Classroom Central has been celebrating Teacher Appreciation all week, but today as the teachers come in to Classroom Central to shop, they will be greeted by a staff decked out as their favorite Star Wars character.  Teachers will receive some fun freebies for themselves and have an opportunity to win great raffle prizes for their classroom.

Wilson made a special announcement today about his upcoming Dudeapalooza.  Dudeapalooza will be partnering with Classroom Central.  Check out Dudeapalooza on Twitter @Dudeapalooza for more information.  The next Dudeapalooza will be held on June 3rd.

Even though we are close to the end of the school year, teachers are still in need of supplies.  Donation hours are Monday – Thursday 8am until noon.  If you can’t make it by during those hours, give them a call (704-377-1740) and they will schedule a time for you to come drop your items off.   They are asking the public as well as companies to help them out.

And don’t forget, they always can use volunteers at Classroom Central.  Be sure to check out their website for volunteer opportunities.

The mission of Classroom Central is to give students who live in poverty the school supplies they need to succeed in the classroom.  Classroom Central covers schools in Charlotte Mecklenburg, Gaston, Iredell/Statesville, Union, the City of Kannapolis, and Lancaster, SC.  To find out more about Classroom Central and how you can help go to their website at classroomcentral.org.
