Wishlist PNG

The MEF Wishlist is a way for our SCM teachers and staff to receive items that are needed to aid them in helping our SCM students have the BEST education possible. This Wishlist is for requests of $200 or less. It may be used as many times a year as a need arises for a teacher or staff member.

You can grant the entire wish or a portion of the wish.

Teachers and staff can make a wishlist request anytime during the year.

Books in Hands

Block the Noise
Request from:  Stephanie Johnson – LaSalle Elementary School

Each year we receive a new class of students and we never know what their needs are. This year I have a few students who need help blocking out some noise. It may be while they are trying to work, in the cafeteria, when we practice drills in school, or if a thunderstorm is passing through. I am asking to be able to have a few noise cancelling headphones in my classroom for these few students to be successful.

LEGO Writing Bricks
Request from:  Stephanie Johnson – LaSalle Elementary School

I am looking to add LEGO bricks to my current LEGO writing kits. My students have already been using these kits as they focus on a topic to write. They creatively build and then write about it. The many colors of the LEGOs and additional pieces have helped them tell about what they have built. It has come to my attention we need more pieces, specifically bricks.

Kindness Club
Request from:  Amanda Hoke – 4th Grade – Emmons Elementary School

I am starting up a Kindness Club at Emmons and each month we will focus on a different act of kindness. For example: in December we will make ornaments for the Mishawaka Police department and in November we will make place mats to deliver to area nursing homes. I will need to purchase different items such as clear glass bulb ornaments, paint, greeting cards, ribbon, bulletin board kit, read aloud books geared for teaching kindness for my club, scrap book paper, flannel tie blankets and other supplies. Students will be meeting twice a month to create and execute projects each month to spread some kindness with in our building.

Sensory Pathways
Request from:  Bryan Waltz – Special Education – Emmons Elementary School

Placing sensory pathways in the halls will potentially benefit all students, with the greatest impact being in the primary grades and with students who have special needs. A sensory path, like Minds-in-Motion, provides help to those with challenges in their learning, behavior, movement, speech, and play by strengthening and balancing the vestibular systems, the leading contributor to balance and spatial orientation for the purpose of coordinating movement. Unlike Minds-in-Motion, the sensory pathways will not require equipment. Instead, they focus on directed movement activities. Because these pathways are in the hallway, teachers can guide their students through the paths as they transition from one school location to another, without taking from other instructional opportunities. The items requested with this grant are a combination of floor stickers for the hard flooring and poly-vinyl-nylon, which can be applied to carpet without causing damage. In addition, some of the resources will advance positive mindsets, literacy connections, and numeracy. I will be responsible for setting up these pathways and providing guidance to those who need it, and the resource will benefit my classes as well as others in the building.

Counter Top Portable Ice Maker
Request from:  Shelly Murphy – Secretary – Liberty Elementary School

I am requesting this item on behalf of our entire student body. Many times our school nurse does not have ice readily available to give out to students whom have been injured or are suffering from a headache, bug bite etc. The small freezer in the nurse’s office cannot always keep up with the demand each day.

Plastic Magazine File Boxes
Request from:  Stephanie Cowman – Intervention – LaSalle Elementary School

LaSalle has expanded their Read 180/S44 groups.  Time is limited with these intervention groups, so organization is vital to optimize learning time.
These magazine boxes will create organization so students can come into the room, grab their materials, and get to work.  Plastic magazine boxes will be more durable than the cheaper cardboard version, so they’ll last longer.
