Brockport first-grade class adopted by J.B. Hunt, receives gifts and $1,000

First-grade teacher Julia Pratt has been awarded a total of $1,000 from Really Good Stuff and J.B. Hunt’s Adopt a Classroom Program to purchase new supplies for her students. 

On Friday, December 16, Ginther Elementary was excited to welcome two J.B Hunt employees into Mrs. Pratt’s class. During the visit, students were able to connect with our guests about trucks, deliveries, and shared stories about their parents’ experiences with mechanics and cars. Students listened attentively as they learned more about safe driving practices; specifically, the importance of precision, slow driving and the difference between driving a truck versus driving a car.

It wasn’t just knowledge and driving tips that our guests from J.B. Hunt shared, they also brought gifts and presents for our students and Mrs. Pratt. There was a chorus of “thank yous” and excited chatter as a toy delivery truck, hats, shirts, coloring books, and build-your-own- delivery-truck were passed out to the students.

According to J.B. Hunt, these prizes are part of the annual Adopt-a-Class program where drivers can nominate their student’s elementary class for a $500- $1,000 donation in school supplies.

Mrs. Pratt received $500 from J.B. Hunt and $500 from Really Good Stuff, a classroom supply company that promotes “innovative, teacher-created classroom solutions.”
