Congratulations, Mr. Solares!

Monday, October 22, 2012by  Victoria Hanlon

On Friday, we had a the privilege of meeting Mr. Edgar Solares, a teacher at Barnes Elementary School in Beaverton, Ore. and his stellar 5th-grade students.  

Mr. Solares and his students are the winners of a Teacher Appreciation contest we launched with our friends at Portland-based non-profit, Schoolhouse Supplies, as part of the annual Fire Up the Learning, A BBQ Benefit for Schoolhouse Supplies.  

The summertime event invited community members to nominate their favorite Oregon K-12 educator for a chance to win $2,500 in supplies for the teacher's classroom.

Once his supplies were in, we loaded WALLY1 up and had a blast delivering $2,500 in school supplies to his classroom.

We wish Mr. Solares and all the students at Barnes Elementary a fun-filled year and look forward to hearing great things about his class of learning super stars!
