Everything looks different this year and school is no exception. Whether your children are attending virtually or in the classroom, we want to ensure you still can give your kids’ schools and teachers the recognition and help they more than deserve.
Adopt-a-Class is an annual program in which J.B. Hunt employee drivers nominate their child’s or grandchild’s elementary school classroom for a donation in school supplies. Drivers submit short essays explaining why their student’s classroom should be selected. J.B. Hunt then selects the winning essays and works with the teachers to order their supplies. This year will be our 8th annual celebration, and although it looks different, we still want to applaud our hardworking teachers however we can.
This year Adopt-a-Class nominations will be held October 11-17. Drivers, nominate your children’s or grandchildren’s, Kindergarten through fifth-grade classrooms to receive $1,000 in school supplies. To help protect our students’ health and safety, this year we will not visit the school in person. Instead, the 10 winning classes will receive a $1,000 gift card to a school supply website.
Teachers have always been heroes, but this year they are going above and beyond the call of duty. Be sure to tell us how your child’s teacher is going the extra mile during this unusual school year.
