Giving Tree Template Freebie!
For more expensive items like hand sanitizer, construction paper, pencil boxes, and tissues; consider constructing a giving tree on your chalkboard during Meet the Teacher or Open House night.
Make a bunch of leaves and attach them to the body and branches of a tree you make out of chalk (or construction paper). Tell parents if they are interested in donating any items, they can take a leaf off of the tree and return the item the first week of school!
I attach these donations to a Homework Pass that students can use for a donated item. Parents love this idea, many times, I’ve had parents hang on to the homework passes until the holidays so they can use it during the busiest time of the year. What a great give back!
