Recently Filled Needs
2nd pair of glasses needed for Robert Frost student
We are in need of a second pair of glasses to be purchased for one of our Robert Frost students. The glasses have been repaired but often times may be left at home, which hinders the students ability to learn effectively in class. Therefore, we thought a second pair to keep at school would be beneficial. Any help or movement toward getting a 2nd pair of glasses would be greatly appreciated.
