Faculty Wish List

This is a program to help the CLA teachers and coaches acquire items that they want/need in their classrooms or for their teams. 

These are items that the teachers and coaches would love to have to help our children and are generally bought out of your personal monies. This program is OPTIONAL and there is no obligation to purchase anything on these lists. We thought having an ongoing wish list online would be helpful for those who like to donate items, give gifts, or have access to these items around their home or office. Sometimes we all have old bookshelves, books, etc. that would be great for a classroom, but we don't think to ask teachers if they could use those things, and instead donate them to a charity. If you don’t see your teacher’s name on the list, please feel free to ask your teacher to fill out a Wish List. We know that the teachers appreciate anything and everything we can do for them. If you want to participate in this Wish List just purchase something for any teacher and give it to them. They will be thrilled! Thank you for your anticipated participation in helping the Teachers and Coaches at CLA.
