Teacher Wish Lists Are Being Updated!!

 Many of our College Square Families purchase gifts throughout the year for our teachers.  Some examples of gifts would be birthday, Christmas, thank you, and just because thoughtful gifts.  Therefore, the PTO has taken the time to have teaching staff put together a teacher/classroom wish list to better help with gift ideas.  The Teacher Wish Lists include our teaching staff’s personal likes and classroom wants and needs.  Our amazing teaching staff regularly has to purchase supplies or items for their classrooms out their own pocket.  This is why the PTO felt it was important to add classroom wants and needs to the lists.  If you locate your teacher and their is no information under her/his name your teacher just has not provided any information to us yet.

The teacher wish lists can be found by just clicking on the Teacher Wish List tab at the top of this main page.  Once you select the Teacher Wish List tab you will see that the teaching staff is broken down by grades, specials, support, and staff to better organize and find your teacher(s).  We plan to update these lists periodically throughout the school year.

Thank you to all of our wonderful College Square families for your continuing support and we hope these Teacher Wish Lists are helpful and beneficial to all.
