School Wish List

Each year Lynn Valley teachers dream of items that will enhance learning and creativity in their classroom, as well as care for the varied needs of our children. Wishlist items are ʻextrasʼ that are not covered by School District funds.

These are a wonderful opportunity for you to donate directly. You can contribute to all or a portion of the cost of an item. Once fully funded, it’s immediately purchased and put to use.
