TEACHER WISH LIST - Last updated on 1-4-10

This is an active ongoing wish list from our educators at Small School. These are all items that will help enhance learning in the classroom. If you choose an item on any list that you would like to donate, please email Lucy (lucyliaw@maine.rr.com) to have the item removed from the wish list. Unless otherwise indicated, send the donated item right to the classroom. This is still in progress, and will be updated frequently. Please check back!
