Riverside Intermediate School'sWish List Project
In an effort to help our teachers and support staff get the materials and supplies that they need and want for their students and their classrooms, the RSI PTO is spearheading The Wish List Project.
Wish List Project Mission & Vision
It seems that parents don’t often know what is needed or wanted in our student’s classrooms. And although sometimes we get a “wish list” in weekly newsletters, we often forget to add items to our shopping list so we forget to pick-up items when we are out and about, or fear that all items may have been purchased already, so we don’t take the initiative. This oftentimes leads to classrooms not receiving necessary supplies for projects and daily classroom life.
The Wish List Project seeks to change that by making it easy to find an up-to-date classroom wish list anytime you are online.
Teachers (i.e. Wishers): You create and maintain a Wish List on Amazon under your own Amazon account. Add any and all items you need and want for your classroom, for projects, for rewards, for daily use, or even for a one-time celebration. Your List will be made available to parents and friends of the classroom on this page. Don’t worry, all your account information will remain private. All the public will see is the list of items on your wish list, your name, and your city. When they purchase items, they will be shipped directly to school!
Wish Grantors (i.e. parents, friends of the classroom, generous strangers): You find the Wish List of the teacher or staff member for whom you would like to grant a wish below, click the button and sail over to Amazon.com where you can add wish list items to your cart, purchase, and have items delivered directly to the wishing teacher. You can even print a list if you prefer to shop locally!

FAQ’s for Wish Grantors
Do I HAVE to Purchase Through Amazon?
Absolutely not! The Amazon Wish List infrastructure just makes it easy for you to purchase, and easy for teachers to manage lists, but you are by no means required to purchase through Amazon.
Can I Print a List?
Yes! On the list page, you will see a link that says “More” on the right hand side of the screen. If you hover over this with your mouse, you will see an option to print pop-up. You can also mark items you have purchased elsewhere so teachers know those items are on their way to the classroom.
What about Priority and Quantities?
Teachers can set the number of items they need (e.g. 6 boxes of pencils) and they can let wish granters know whether or not an item is high priority or low (or somewhere in between). You do NOT need to buy all 6 boxes of pencils if that is the number they have requested. Any and all gifts are appreciated!
Can I Share a Teacher's Wish List?
Sure! Simply direct family and friends to this webpage (rsi-pto.com/wish-list) or copy the amazon wish list url from your browser and email or text it.
