CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Sept. 11, 2022 - PRLog -- September means school buses are on the road, football practice is in full swing, and we in the South can dream of boots, jeans and sweaters! It's an exciting time for kids, too, as they jump back into the classroom. Unfortunately, it's a challenging return for children who are behind academically. According to Classroom Central, NC state test results show proficiency rates plummeted due to the pandemic, as only 45.4% of K-12 students passed state exams. For economically disadvantaged students, the pass rates dropped to only 28.8%. ONE in every TWO local students live in poverty and can't afford the supplies they need. Locally, that means 127,000 students need 1,000,000+ supplies.

Michelle Keaton Barrow, CEO of Keaton Barrow Realty, and Emma Allen of State Farm Insurance want to help, and they need your assistance. Join them at Emma's office at 4920 Monroe Road on September 22 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. for food, drinks, music and networking as they join to provide school supplies to Classroom Central. Your homework: bring your business cards and supplies from CLASSROOM CENTRAL'S 9 SCHOOL TOOLS (https://classroomcentral.org/9schooltools/) wish list.

The evening is part of the Carolina's Largest Virtual & In Person School Supply Drive. According to Michelle, "support for our local children is critical this year. We need to do everything we can to help them catch up and succeed in school. We want them to be excited about learning, because it shouldn't end when they finish school. A love of lifelong learning is a gift we can all give through the notebooks, pencils, markers and more that we start them off with today. It's key to their success in life."
