Next time you are at school, check out the very large apple on the wall to the right of the community room doors. The apples attached are wish list items (a special book, colored board markers, art paper, a magazine subscription for class, special art items, pictures cut from magazines for a project, etc). These are items our teachers or other staff need or would like to have for the instruction of our children. Teachers often have to purchase those little necessities and like to haves on their own time. Children love to give “apples” to their teacher and this provides them a way to say you’re special all year long.
Here’s how it works:
- Take one of the “apples” from the display.
- Acquire the item.
- Attach the “paper apple wish” to the item you have purchased.
- Have your child deliver it to the teacher.
- Check the board frequently for new wish list items!
