THREE questions i was wondering if you guys could offer help on.
1) anyone know the dimensions of the desks? my dad wants to build me a hutch for my desk.
2) do you guys know where to get adhesive bulletin boards?
3) okay, i lost my calculator at the end of the year at the statistics AP. my mom says she's not buying me a new one because they're 100$, but i'm taking pre-cal!
anyway i can borrow/check one out, or something? i'm really worried about this.
thanks for all potential help in advance! (:

I can't really help you with bulletin boards or exact desk measurements, but the desks are roughly 18" by 3'. I'm more sure about the 18". You can borrow graphing calcs, I think for the year, so you don't NEED a new one. It might be easier to just borrow one from someone who's not using theirs this semester. w/e.
the desk is 4 ft wide and two ft long.
If you do borrow a calculator, make sure you keep it in a safe place. I borrowed one last year and misplaced it. So yeah, I have to pay a fee.
oh, okay. thanks, that's helpful!
sucks that you lost one, though. :/
Walmart, A.C. Moore and Michael's all have plenty of bulletin boards. As far as adhering them, the only combination I found (after unsuccessful trials of sticky wax, tape, and mounting strips) that kept my wipe-off board solidly in place without damaging the wall was Tesa tape and these amazing suckers:
You can borrow a calculator but you've gotta pay for the batteries.
Getting excited to meet you guys in eleven days :)
Be careful about what you stick to the wall. I used doctor's tape and when I pulled my posters off to move out it ripped the paint off.
Oh, Precalculus was such a good time.
My TI-89 was "too advanced" for Mrs. Miles' class, so I borrowed a calculator. She does make you get your own batteries, as my lovely roommate Erin said above.
Sometimes rooms come with two long desks, but sometimes they come with one long one and one short one. Usually it's two long ones.
