Classroom Needs

I purchased 2 Kurio Tablets for the classroom on Black Friday!

We need headphones for the kiddos to use the tablets and headphone splitters so that more than one kid can can use technology at once! Headphones that go over ears are the best and most hygienic.

I also still have a need for my donors choose project to be funded. Send it on, share it on facebook, and just check it out, here... http://goo.gl/OueWz1

Also, our book bins are falling apart! Your kiddos use them to take their belongings from class to class and to store reading books and folders. If you are interested in supporting us by helping us get new book bins, please contact Mrs. Locke.
