    PTR- Question



    What is the PTR Center?

    The PTR Center provides educational and classroom resources for purchase including manipulatives, teaching aids, classroom supplies, various printed material resources, storage/organization ideas, paper and materials in various weights and colors for digital printing and/or activity construction, and more. Materials can be bought by the piece so that you never have to buy more than you need.

    For example: If you need only 20 sheets of assorted colored paper, you don't have to buy a ream or package as you would at a retail store. You can purchase by the sheet and select the colors you want from a wide and varied assortment that the Center provides. 


    In addition, the PTR Center provides access to equipment including laminators, black and white and color copiers, binding machines, button makers, die cuts, poster makers, work tables, resource rooms, computers, internet, and more!
