Teacher Resources

We are here to support our elementary teachers & staff. Find out more about how we do that.

PTO Purchase Requests

Norwalk PTO has established an ongoing program that allows our teachers to submit classroom or school requests directly to us! We get them what they need quickly and have fulfilled requests ranging from classroom supplies and furniture to indoor recess activities and rewards!

Teacher Favorites & Amazon Wish List

We know that our community also loves supporting our teachers & staff, so we tried to make it a little easier! Everyone at our elementary schools was asked to share some of their favorite things (color, candy, snack, or drink) and their Amazon wish list (if they have one). We regularly request updated favorites and share through our regular newsletters and on Facebook.
