2015-2016 Wishlist

Dear Wildwood Community:  Let’s Support Our Teachers!

I’m Jasper, volunteering with the Parent Guardian Organization (PGO), and each year, we ask the teachers to let us know what they could use in their classrooms.  This web page is a way we can find out what they need, and help them not have to spend their own money.

Please consider donating any of the items below, or check with your Classroom Parent and/or teacher if there may be other ways you could help.

Note to teachers:  To make additions / changes, feel free to email me at wildwood.wishlist@gmail.com or 503-890-3200.

Wishlists from previous years can be seen here.
