Arlington Heights Elementary Teacher Support Cabinet

The first step this year in our partnership with AHE was to place a Teacher Support Cabinet in the school. We want to fill it with items that teachers normally pay for themselves. If you want to add items, please bring them in to the bin in the social hall. As the teachers fill out the “wish list”, items will be requested. Contact person is Jennifer Tucker: jennifergtucker@aol.com.
