Holiday wishes … for our teachers!


The holidays are just around the corner, which means it is time for the annual HOLIDAY WISH WALL!

Please view the wishes on the wall during your conference visits. The Wish wall offers suggestions for those families who would like to both give a holiday gift to their teachers and also support the classroom. We have asked the grade-level, specials, ECSE, and preschool teachers, as well as the Literary Specialist, to identify items that would be helpful in their classrooms.

The Wish Wall items include the routine items (like tissues and scotch tape) to more substantial supports (like an electric pencil sharpener and books) and special treats (like stickers and decorated duck tape).

The Wish Wall holds snowflakes with each teacher’s name and a wished-for item. Please check out their requests across the school at the following locations:

  • Outside each classroom/specials room during parent-teacher conferences on November 18-19
  • Outside the cafeteria during the Cloudy With A Chance of Pancakes Pancake Supper and book fair on December 3
  • Near the PTA bulletin board at the main entrance for the rest of December.

If you see an item you would like to purchase, just remove the snowflake with that item from the Wish Wall!

Please feel free to contact Christine Gerdes (second grade mom) at with any questions. Thanks and enjoy the holiday season!
