Spring Cleaning/ Library Media Center Wish List

This year we have worked hard to provide better Media Center programming to our students at Pinewood. We have run five sessions of coding club, monthly Monday Morning Makers events, and purchased books for information and entertainment. We work really hard to stretch our budget and support all these endeavors. We have also been blessed with donations from the Pinewood PTO, Horace Mann, and DonorsChoose donors. Now we are reaching out to you. It's that time of the year where we start doing a little spring cleaning around the house. We think it might be possible that while you clean your house you may find some things that are no longer useful to you, but could be useful to us. Please take a look at the list below and if you happen to find any of these things just laying around unused, feel free to send them with your child to the Pinewood Media Center. Thank you again for all your support!
