Our Philosophy

Classroom Connections, a 501-(c)3 organization, “The Teachers’ Resource” is a FREE shopping store for local educators. Classroom Connections was founded in 2014, initially served only Catawba County Schools, but now serves all public K-12 educational efforts in the following counties: Alexander, Caldwell, Catawba, Cleveland, Iredell and Lincoln. These Public educators are invited shop to to provide school supplies for classrooms and students who need them.

Why We Do…      What We Do...

Teachers are second only to parents and caregivers with access to daily influence children.
We are here to provide teachers with free school supplies on behalf of their students.

 How To Get Involved ~ We NEED Y-O- U, yes YOU!
