The Educator Warehouse is open to all WS/FCS classroom teachers.
Registration is required.
We have a new site! All teachers will need to create an account to secure an appointment to shop!
All classroom teachers employed by the Winston-Salem / Forsyth County School system are allowed to "shop" at the Educator Warehouse. Teachers must register in advance for a specific day and time. Please bring your own shopping bags for an extra two points!
Who Can Shop?
All classroom teachers who are employed by the WS/FC school system are allowed visit up to four times per school year but no more than once per quarter. Administrators, central office personnel, curriculum coordinators, teacher assistants, and other similar staff members are now able shop at the Warehouse. Teaching coaches, P.E. teachers, Art teachers, and Media specialists are also permitted to shop.
When Can I Shop?
The Warehouse is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 - 5:30 PM (on scheduled school days), and the first and third Saturdays of each month from 9:00 - 11:00 AM. Advance registration is required. Please note - if school or after-school activities are canceled due to inclement weather, the Warehouse will also be closed.
Where Is the Educator Warehouse?
It is located in a pod behind Diggs-Latham Elementary School near Peter's Creek Parkway between Business 40 and I-40. Directions: Please park in the Diggs-Latham Elementary School parking lot and walk between the buildings following the signs to the Educator Warehouse.
What type of items are available at the Warehouse?
The Educator Warehouse is stocked with thousands of new and gently-used classroom supplies and teacher resources donated by the community and local businesses. Pencils, pens, crayons, markers, paper, spiral notebooks, binders, files, folders, lesson plan idea books, bulletin board decorations, name cards, giant picture books, math manipulatives, writing guides, science books, class decorations, and so much more! Supplies are intended for classroom use only.
Is there a limit to what I can get?
Yes. To ensure all WS/FCS classroom teachers have an opportunity to shop for these classroom supplies, each teacher is allowed to receive up to 25 points of merchandise per visit. All items in the Warehouse have a point value ranging from 1 - 15 points. Because supplies are limited, we ask teachers to please be mindful of other teachers' needs when shopping. Please only take what is needed for your classroom for that quarter.
How many teachers can shop each day?
To keep from getting too crowded at any given time, we allow 15 teachers per hour to shop in the Warehouse. All teachers are asked to shop only during their designated hour, so be sure to arrive on time! Because there are a limited number of spots open for each day, please do not make a reservation if you are not a classroom teacher.
How do I register to shop?
Go to the Teacher Registration form fill it out and submit it, then click on the date for which you wish to register. Choose your date carefully as you only have one visit per quarter.
What do I do if I need to cancel or change my appointment?
If you must change or cancel your appointment, do so from the registration page within 48 hours of your appointment. If there is an emergency and you need to cancel the day before your appointment, please cancel online on your scheduled events page. If you discover you are unable to shop on the day of your appointment, please email email@example.com to allow other teachers on the waiting list an opportunity to shop. Teachers who do not contact us within 24 hours before or after their appointment will forfeit their opportunity to shop for that quarter.
What do I do if I cannot get registration to work?
You must have a WS/FC school email address and password to register. If the one you enter does not work, please contact the Educator Warehouse manager. If you are a new teacher and do not have a WS / FC school email address yet, you can use your personal email address to create an account, but please update to your WS / FC school email once it is received.
Can I come if I am not registered or if I am on the waiting list?
No, please do not. Shopping visits are by appointment only. We cannot take teachers who have not registered or who are on the waiting list. If you are on the waiting list and an opening becomes available, you will receive confirmation of registration. If you are on the waiting list and want to register for a different time or day, please cancel your registration before registering for another time.
What do I need to bring with me when I shop?
Please bring your WS/FCS ID badge. There's no need to bring any money since everything is FREE! Bringing your own bags will earn you an extra two points to shop with!
Who can I contact with other questions? E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 336-671-1078. To register, click to fill out the form.
