Staff Reports

Staples is making it easy for teachers to have the tools they need to do their job by hosting a Teacher Appreciation Day at store locations across the country.

Teacher Appreciation Day will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 14 at the Carson City Staples store located at 915 Jacks Valley Road.

According to the National Education Association’s research department, 92 percent of public school teachers spend an average of $475 on classroom materials for their students.

The first 100 teachers visiting Staples stores on Teacher Appreciation Day will receive an Avery Binder filled with paper, a pencil pouch and supplies. Teachers will also have the opportunity to preview new products and services at Staples. New this year, Staples is offering teachers a special copy and print promotion throughout the back-to-school season of 5-cent black-and-white copies of classroom materials.
