On the Friday before school starts, my school is having their open house (like most school are). I am going to make a bulletin board that is going to say "I am wishing a star!" I am going to put a buch of stars on the board that each have one thing that I would like parents to donate to the classroom. I work for a charter school, therefore, for every child that goes to the school, their parents MUST volunteer 30 hours of their time to the school and class where their child is...some parents cannot take time off of work so we have a policy that they can substitute 1 hour for $15 dollars...so, if they buy things for my class, they can bring in the recipts and time will be taken off of their required 30 hours. (If they don't complete 30 hours during the school year, their child WILL be withdrawn form the school and will not be able to return the following year. SOOOO....I don't know what to ask for....can anyone make suggestions???!!! Thanks!
