HV Classroom Amazon.com Wish Lists

Our Teachers have begun to make Amazon Wish Lists (posted at the top of www.HVPFO.org's top 'More' menu) for you to use anytime to help stock your children's classrooms. They'll keep their lists up to date throughout the year. 

Ms. Flamson, Ms. Leech, Mrs. Palmer, & the Library have the 1st Wish Lists in. Click (on the links in the previous sentence) to try them out! 

Teachers at every school (public and private) spend a great deal out of pocket on their students/classrooms. These Wish Lists can help us keep ours from doing that so much (especially teachers who are new - or new to a grade level - and will go to great effort to supply their rooms).

(Note: Choose the Wish List's delivery address and your purchase will go straight to HV! & If you sign in through smile.amazon.com with the Harbor View Parent-Faculty Organization as your beneficiary the HVPFO will receive a % of your purchase to throw into HV's programs and staffing = win, win, win. However, if you'd like to purchase items elsewhere: Go for it and then mark them as 'purchased' in the appropriate Amazon.com Wish List to keep all copacetic!)
