Calculator Donations

The Learning Commons has a collection of calculators which have been left at school by former students and never reclaimed. We created a plan to lend these devices to students who may not be able to obtain their own calculator. Many of the units are showing wear and a few no longer work at all. We are hopeful to restock our supply through donations and are especially in need of TI-83 and TI-84 graphing calculators. If you have a graduating senior or a student no longer taking math classes requiring a graphing calculator, please consider donating your unused devices for use by other students. These units will be added to our collection for checkout and returned at the end of each year. Any donations can be labeled for the Learning Commons and left at the West Door Security Office or dropped off in the Learning Commons. Thank you for your consideration.
