Wish List - Needs Request
Helping Hands Greatest Needs Fund
48% of DeLong Middle School families live in poverty and struggle to provide basic items for their children. The Helping Hands Fund provides basic essentials (backpacks, socks, underwear, coats, boots, and other cold weather gear) as well as funds for needy students to participate in special non-athletic programs and field trips.
|$100 per child/year
Learning with Technology for Special Needs
iPads are needed to meet the needs of self-contained special education students. The district has made technology a priority, but needs outstrip the current budget. To keep things equitable for all students. We need one classroom set of iPads that will be shared among many.
|$500 x 10 Students/ Classroom
DeLong has a very high participation rate in extracurricular activities. Many of our students do not have transportation to get home after activities and rely on the city bus system.
WEB Training Materials
DeLong sponsors the Where Everybody Belongs (WEB) program which matches 8th graders with 6th graders for an extensive orientation before school starts in addition to sponsored activities throughout the school year.
