Teacher's Wish List!

Teacher's Wish List!

In the Family Consumer Science room, I am wishing for:

2 sewing machines (janome preferably)


Sets of dish towels

Sets of wash rags

Dish soap

Hand washing soap

These are just some things that would be nice to have without using my budget up.

We have 4 kitchen units so it is so nice to have plenty of supplies.

I will let you know if I think of anything else!

Thank you,

Megan Saunders


For the Art Department we could use,

Wet wipes/Clorox Wipes

Saran Wrap

Toilet paper rolls


Regular Sized Elmer’s Glue Bottles

Watercolor paper

Bulk amount of plain T-shirts

Ice cream pails or buckets

Any spare bulk craft supplies (I can use anything)

Any old frames in bulk

Large containers to hold items (brushes, odds and ends, etc.)

Thank you,

Vanessa Morken



My wish list includes: Social Studies

-Classroom set (30) compasses

-Classroom set of desktop atlases

-2 U.S. flags

-Kinetic sand ($18.99/box + tax) at Art & Learn

(30 boxes + sterilite 8x13 lidded containers for each box of sand-We use these for landforms in geography. The students love it!)

-5 to 10 handheld GPS units

-Classroom set of adult-size scissors

-20 clipboards

I’m sure there’s more but it’s a start. These may not fit the criteria; but I’ll leave it to you to take items off the list. I know if we had these items they could and would be shared through the middle school. (Ok, I might hoard the kinetic sand… but I’d share everything else.)

Thank you,

Julie Dietrich



Our wish list for the Oak Grove music department would include a couple really big ticket items.

I know we would love to have a nice 7 or 9-foot Steinway piano someday for rehearsal and performance.

These grand pianos are in the $40,000.00 to $80,000.00 range, but since it is a "wish" list, perhaps that is appropriate to mention it.  Another big ticket item would be a Rosewood Marimba. These also run in the $10,000.00 to $20,000.00 range.

Soli Deo Gloria!

Math Department, I could use a decent rolling table (ex. Michelle Forness) for use with my technology items.  My old metal table came from the 50’s I think and doesn’t roll very well anymore.

Thank you,
