What is Apple for the Classroom?
The Apple for the Classroom program is a service of the Las Lomitas and La Entrada PTAs that provides a way for parents to support their children's classrooms by donating items from teacher wish lists. Wishes may include specific items such as art supplies, or donations toward class activities such as field trips. Items and donations are used by the teacher to enrich the classroom experience. If nothing displays for a teacher, they may not have updated their list for the school year, please check back soon.
How can I make a donation?
From the Apple for the Classroom home page, choose a wish list from the list of teachers who have requested items for their classroom.
The wish list will show two different types of items. There are items you can sponsor by making an online donation via PayPal, and items you can sign up to bring to the school for delivery to the teacher. Click on “Donate via PayPal” or “Bring item” to add the wish to your cart and choose your donation amount.
Click on "Choose Another Wish List" to continue adding items from other teachers' wish lists. When you're done shopping, click Submit to finish. You'll be redirected to the PayPal checkout page to complete the payment process for any cash donations.
Can I donate any amount?
Yes! You’re welcome to contribute a partial amount toward a wish, or get together with other families to fulfill larger wishes. Any contribution is appreciated and meaningful for the classroom experience.
What happens after I donate?
After you submit your donations, you will receive one or more confirmation emails. If you’ve submitted a PayPal donation, you should also receive a confirmation email and payment receipt from PayPal. For items you’ve chosen to bring to the school, please plan to bring them to the school office for delivery to the teacher.
Your donation will also be displayed at the bottom of the teacher's wish list, either with your name or as an Anonymous donor, depending on what you chose during the checkout process.
Are donations tax-deductible?
Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Donations are coordinated by the Las Lomitas Elementary School District (Tax I.D. # 94-3084035).
What if I signed up to bring an item but then changed my mind?
Please send us an email -- we’ll add the item back onto the teacher’s wish list.
How can I get help if I have other questions?
