2022-2023 Teacher Wish Lists

Each year, families are given an opportunity to gift the teacher and classroom with different items from an Amazon wish list. These wish lists are created by the teacher. The wish list idea has been chosen in lieu of holiday gifting. It’s a great way to show appreciation to our teachers and enhance the learning experience. Everyone in the class and school can benefit from the gifts. 

Click the “Teachers’ Favorite Things” to find the teacher wish lists attached. 


Scrip is a gift card that is used like cash at many participating retailers. It can be used for everyday purchases like gas, groceries, dry cleaning and also makes a great gift!

Dubuque Montessori School purchases gift cards from many businesses at a discount. Families purchase those gift cards from DMS at face value. Dubuque Montessori School keeps the difference, which goes into the fundraising account to help run our school.

To get started, go to raiseright.com and use enrollment code B14FB1LD4661 to register with DMS to receive the profits.

**For more information on Scrip and how to order, check out the Scrip Info Letter.
