Brentfield PTA School Supply Drive For Dobie Elementary

Dobie Elementary is a neighborhood RISD school serving approximately 800 children between the ages 3 and 6.

The majority of the children are learning English as a second language and many of the families have limited financial resources. Dobie was adopted by the Brentfield PTA over 20 years ago and the relationship between the two schools remains strong. Throughout the school year, the Brentfield PTA organizes several projects to fulfill the needs of Dobie families and staff.

Our first project benefiting Dobie Elementary is the annual school supply drive. We are asking for the support of the Brentfield community. The following is a list of suggested items by grade level, but please feel free to donate any of the items listed. New or gently used backpacks are also needed and very much appreciated.

There will be a box marked “Dobie” located by the office in each building. We will be collecting items until Friday, September 11th.

Kinder- Glue sticks, Elmer’s glue
1st – Black Expo Markers, construction paper (assorted colors
2nd – 24 count crayons, 8 count Crayola markers
3rd – Manilla paper, pink erasers

This drive is a team effort. Go Team Brentfield!
