Waco ISD Wish List

Waco ISD Wish List
Please DONATE

The WISD Wish List allows principals, teachers and administrators the opportunity to communicate the most needed items and services on their individual campuses and across the district.

On behalf of Waco ISD, we would like to express our appreciation in advance for your donation to our children. Donating items and services requested on the WISD Wish List is such a nice way to show support for our students.

Waco ISD is working hard to inspire students to pursue excellence in the classroom and to empower teachers with the tools necessary to create exemplary learners. Thank you for your support and continued involvement on our campuses.
