Clear the List: JESS Teachers Need Our Help

Let’s help these students get much-needed school supplies! (Image from the 2022-2023 school year)

For those of you on social media, you may have seen the recent Clear the List movement. Clear the List is an initiative created to help teachers receive much-needed school supplies throughout the country. Today I’d like to help the teachers at Julius E. Sprauve School (JESS) clear their lists.

JESS is the only public elementary school in St. John. (Children attending public high school take the ferry over to St. Thomas each day.) JESS educates children from pre-k through 8th grade, and there are currently 218 children attending. Most teachers purchase their own classroom supplies, which can be quite pricey, so I am hoping some of you can pitch in and help. The school is planting a garden again this year, so Ms. Munnelly is looking for assistance purchasing items for that.

Julie King, a former JESS parent and community organizer, is spearheading the Clear the List movement once again. You can help for as little as $3.99 if you’d like to purchase a mouse pad. The priciest items on the list are much-needed ink cartridges, which cost $449 for a four-pack. Items also needed are pencils, bulletin board paper, a carpet for the kindergarteners, and more.

The teachers’ lists are located on Amazon. Please click here to view JESS’s Amazon Wish List.

When you check out after adding something from the Amazon Wish List to your cart, you will see an option for Julie King’s Gift Registry under your addresses. Click that option, please. You can also send it directly to Julie King at PO Box 1469, St. John, VI 00831.

Thank you everyone for helping our community with this. It is so appreciated. The teachers received a ton of support last year. Let’s do it again!

    Hi Jenn. Friends of the Park is ordering items from the list. FYI, the EXPO markers and the permanent black markers cannot ship to your address. Most likely a USVI thing. Thanks, jennifer stone

    Thank you Jenn for posting this! And a huge thank you to everyone who has donated. I know some of the items won’t ship. It’s for sure a USVI thing. I accept cash donations to fill in the gaps and to get some of the more expensive items like the ink cartridges.
