Headphones Needed ASAP!

Please send headphones!

We are still desperately in needs of head phones for each child! We would be grateful to receive more donations so that every student can have access to technology. Thank you to those that have already sent an extra pair.

Every child will need headphone for iReady testing! Your child will also use headphones during Daily 5 and math several times per week. Due to health concerns, it is best for children to have their own set of headphones. Please send in a set of headphones (not earbuds) at your earliest convenience. They will be able to enjoy our incredible technology as soon as they have headphones. :) We would greatly appreciate donations if you are able to send more than one set.
