Thanks for a great post. I’m begging ( i have at admit) for votes. My son’s school is a public elementary and we have been working 24 hours a day to get votes since this contest started. But the Jewish community is killing it for us. Great for them because they are so united. Their private schools are pretty much taking over all the spots to win for their schools. My son’s school doesn’t have that kind of support.
If anyone has a facebook account and wouldn’t mind doing something that would be so appreciated. Please give us some votes. Facebook~Kohl’s Cares and vote for Robert L. Forbuss Elementary school.

Hello my school need new playground equipment. I am a kindergarten teacher and I would like to see the money used for new playground equipment for my students as well as the whole school. The school name is Walton Elementary School in Fort Worth, TX. Help us, please if you can! Go Jets!
This wonderful school atop Mt Washington overlooking Pittsburgh on Grandview Avenue is a beautiful addition to the skyline of our great city. I watched my grandchildren “sign” the National Anthem at PNC Park a couple of years ago…As so many Catholic Schools close in the city, this one holds on for the families who value the tradition of a Catholic Education. I am saying a prayer to Our Blessed Mother, and wearing my Miraculous Medal in hopes that the votes for this fine school will bring benefits:)
The cruel times the economy brings to the life of young children is awful. Even teachers have been removed in order to help save money, canceling classes for five days has been another method for this. We need drastic change to our public school for us to learn and grow so that one day we make a change in the world that will benefit us all. WE ARE THE FUTURE!!! JOIN… AND HELP US!!! GO LANCERS, AVALON HIGH SCHOOL!!!
