CLASS STORE ITEMS NEEDED

If your child is in Mrs. Akin's homeroom, we would love any class store items you are willing to donate. The class store will open at the end of each month. Students will use their DOJO dollars to purchase these items. Some things that are popular include things like slime/silly putty, gel pens, fun erasers or pencils, candy bars, and other small trinkets. If you need other suggestions, the best person to ask if your child. Thank you!
