Operation Wish List provides an opportunity each year for the faculty and staff of a carefully selected Austin ISD elementary school to submit a Wish List of items for us to fulfill that will enhance the educational experience for their students. In early 2019, we fulfilled the wishes of Cowan Elementary. Items selected might include musical instruments, math and science materials, manipulatives and library books. The OWL program was created in 2010 and has served nine campuses.
OWL also has a PreK Project. Last year PreK students in classes at Rodriquez Elementary and each of their younger siblings received new books to take home. Additional funds were used to purchase school library books for all Del Valle ISD elementary schools and for the Austin ISD summer “Buford the Book Bus” program.
