Needed: Working VCRs

     If you have a working VCR that you no longer need/want, please consider donating it to our Media Center. We have an extensive collection of excellent teaching videos on VHS, but very few teachers have VCRs in their classroom since we have moved onto DVD and Blue-Ray players. It would be great to have a few VCRs in the Media Center to check out for classroom use so that these wonderful VHS tapes don't have to be discarded. 

 

You can drop the VCR off in the front office Monday-Thursday from 8:00 A.M.-3:00 P.M. or in the Media Center on Wednesdays or Thursdays from 8-3. Ms. Dorough will be happy to write a receipt that you can use for tax purposes.
