If you can, please make our wishes come true!
If you might be able to donate any of these items or otherwise help Orchard Valley acquire them, please speak to staff in the School Office. Used items in good condition are generally just as useful to us as new ones. Please do not just drop off items at the school: please speak with us first. Feel free to email staff with questions.
As always, donations to the school are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
Please keep an eye on this page because our wish list will evolve. There will generally be some big items on the list as well as some smaller items.
