School: Columbia High School

Wish Delivered: Laptop Charging Tower

This wishlist will purchase a Laptop charging tower for teacher Daniel Young. He says “ With our students using their laptops every class period, they are constantly needed to charge them. With 36+ kids in a single class, it's impossible for every student to sit by an outlet. This will allow me to place a charging station in the center of the room, giving outlet access to every student in the room, wherever they sit. Allowing for less distractions of students moving all around, and more time to focus on their work.”

School: Middleton High School

Wish Delivered: Classroom Supplies

This wishlist will help teacher Patricia Brown purchase supplies needed such as folders, paper, classroom décor and organization as well as a subscription to an educational magazine resource. Ms. Brown says “ Our students have smaller classes on campus, with fewer to a class, but teachers do not have many basic supplies without spending personal funds. These items on the list are needed in the classroom for filing and storing curriculum. Web based education sites cost teachers annually, and Education.com and National Geographic for kids are excellent supplemental sites, which have many visual resources our students need to learn and expand on their Life Skills needs, functional projects, literature and common general education courses are covered by Education.com, as well as National Geographic.”

School: Sweet Montour School

Wish Delivered: Chairs

Teacher Deanna Richards says “My chairs in my classroom are falling apart. They are almost 20 years old. They are mismatched and rocky. Since I teach a multiage classroom, I need chairs that can grow with students for 2 years. These chairs would be more comfortable for my students and stack easily for clean-up. The district doesn't always have money for new chairs, since there are more pressing needs (e.g., holes in windows, torn carpets). Research shows that when a student can sit comfortably one of their basic needs is being met, therefore they can now focus on learning, not falling.”
