Donors Choose Project for our Classroom

I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to succeed, so I just created a request for my classroom at
Project Based Learning in History through Reliable State-of-the-Art Software!
I'm looking to get a new reliable Macbook for our classroom to utilize current graphic design, music mixing, and video editing software, that has excellent processing speed to efficiently project Keynotes, images, videos, and live streaming for visual learners.
Give to our classroom project by April 14 and your donation will be doubled thanks to Just enter the code LIFTOFF1368 on the payment page and you'll be matched dollar for dollar (up to $50 for each donor).
-At check out click on the blue line "includes optional 15% donation"
-Change the percentage to 0% (it will put 100% of your donation toward our classroom project and fund it quicker)
Don't forget to add the code LIFTOFF1368 to the payment page so your donation is matched dollar for dollar (up to $50) 
Thank you very much for considering donating to this classroom project. 

Classroom Wish List (updated)

Hello Parents of Room 79!                                                               August 2017

The 2017-18 school year is off to a fantastic start. Thank you for all of your support and encouragement thus far. It was lovely meeting many of you last night at Back to School Night. There are a few things that I could use in our classroom to make things more efficient and fun. I thought I would put out a Classroom Wish List. I’ve never done this before, however, parents often ask if there’s anything they can do to help or donate. Below is my classroom wish list for right now, and in no particular order. I added a couple items to the list handed out last night.  Thank you for reading this, and for your continued support.

  • packs of lots of pens (black or blue, with caps, not clicky pens - I prefer Bic Round Stic in black or blue, but any are great)
  • Packs of RED pens
  • used tennis balls
  • cleaning wipes
  • hand sanitizer
  • lined paper
  • staples
  • dry erase markers
  • 3x5 index cards
  • 4x6 index cards
  • packs of colored sharpies (for students' use for art on projects throughout the year)
  • brown paper grocery bags for covering books
  • new U.S. Presidents Bulletin Board Set (in order to include the current president) “Trend Enterprises U.S. Presidents Bulletin Board Set (T-8065)”
  • AA batteries (for clocks and various technology in the classroom)
  • Digital Wall Clock with seconds and date
  • Poster boards
  • Construction paper
  • Book binding repair tape (to repair the class set of textbooks)
  • hot glue sticks (to fix the class set of textbooks)
  • scotch tape (either generic or name brand is great)
  • pack of chalkboard markers
  • vinyl records with cover (for a super fun project in the spring)

Thank you,
