**At the request of the superintendent, 
Dr. Houle, if you do plan to donate a computer or printer, please check in with her office. The school's plan is to have a uniform computer system across all schools and they just want to be sure it will fit in with the other computers. Thanks! 

If your child's teacher does not have a list above- let them know you would like to see one posted for them!

All they have to do is email Ken Voisine at ken@cssrpto.org
