Wish Delivered: Book Repair Machine

Librarian Carolyn Knam says “In an aging library and with little money to replace books, repairing books is sometimes the only option I have to ensure our students are reading what they like to read. When I glue books back together with book glue, after the pages fall out, it usually takes a few days to dry and most times there will be more than one repair for that book. By the time I can get it to the student after the repair, they have lost interest, or moved on to something else. Often that popular book makes a difference whether a student reads what they check out.
A Cover One machine would help reduce repair time and allow our library books, whose spines need repair, to be fixed quickly. This will get books back in the hands of our students faster and keep them reading.”

Wish Delivered: Classroom Organization Supplies

Teacher Felicity Steer says “I am asking for some help organizing my classroom for my students. I have a class full of active and vibrant third graders. Since I value collaboration, I have chosen to move away from desks and now have tables in my classroom. I have seen great success with student engagement, but we are lacking in organization. The room often feels messy as we simply do not have places to put their materials now that there are no desks... When your environment looks and feels chaotic, it is hard to focus and work hard. With the absence of desks in my classroom and introduction of tables, there simply isn't a place for students to put their supplies. With the purchase of my Wishlist items I will be able to give my students a peaceful classroom environment."

School: Park Intermediate School

Wish Delivered: Math and Art Supplies

Teacher Mari Cluff says "My special education students range from 9-11 years in physical ages, but anywhere from pk-3rd grade in their cognitive abilities. I teach reading, writing, and math in the resource room, teach self-help/life skills and social emotional learning in the extended resource room, that all happens to be in the same physical location. Since I have such various learners, the need for curriculum supports, games, and such have a very large span. I also have a couple of students with physical limitations. This can make getting them down the very large hill our school is housed on, and to community/school events when bussing is not available, very tricky... They are small in stature and having a wagon that I can push/pull them in, will allow them to participate in all our walking field trips with their classes."

This Wishlist will help buy supplies for the Exceptional Children’s Program.
