It’s just about that time again.

In the coming weeks, parents and students will be heading to the stores to assemble the pencils, scissors, glue and other necessities for a successful school year.

To help ensure success for every student, two local organizations are collecting supplies to help needy families give their kids the tools they need for going back to school.

The Salvation Army of Northwest Ohio, in conjunction with the Charter One Foundation, is conducting its annual Tools for School campaign, designed to help low-income families.

Cardinal Stritch High School has received a $10,000 A+ for Energy grant from the BP Energy Education Program. The grant, entitled “The Green Cardinal Project,” is designed to use the visual, computer and language arts to educate students about multiple methods of recycling and conserving energy.

“We will organize our Art and Recycling Club to collect recyclable items from classrooms,” said Patricia Bails-Saelzler, art instructor at Cardinal Stritch. “Art students will paint colorful classroom receptacles for collecting recyclable materials. Our computer and art students will design flyers and posters for display and distribution. And our English students will write scripts that will be used in multi-media video presentations to support the “Green Cardinal Project.”
