Parents will also receive gift bags, saying “thank you for teaching our students” during the virtual learning over the past several weeks.

“This will help, yeah. They can get out, get some exercise, snacks, toilet paper, sanitizer soap you name it," Byck Elementary School teacher Brittney Gee said. "Try to get them whatever they needed and some fun stuff for the summer.”

The Rajon Rondo Foundation and some of our viewers helped with the bicycles and other fun summer supplies.
