Volunteers, etc.

Our classroom could use some: gallon and snack sized ziplock bags, two-prong brads,  tissue boxes, a can of compressed air (to clean out electronics with), and reams of white paper. Also, if someone had an extra iPad 2 screen protector, we could put that to good use!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving break!

-Ms. You
