K-12 Title 1 public or charter school teachers in APS territory can apply for a chance to win a $500 gift card through the APS Supply My Class Program until Aug. 13.


“Teachers play an instrumental role in shaping our children’s minds and fostering academic growth,” said Tina Marie Tentori, Director of Community Affairs for APS. “By helping teachers with needed supplies, we hope to empower them to continue to inspire, innovate and cultivate a love for learning in the classrooms.”


Since it launched in 2018, the APS Supply My Class program has awarded more than 4,500 teachers with funding to buy basic school supplies, refresh their classrooms, and more. The program is part of APS’s long history of supporting education through teachers.
