Stiffler November/December 2016 www.cspmag.com Growing up, and I imagine many of you readers can relate, it wasn’t the holiday season until the Sears Christmas catalog arrived. I remember sitting beside my sister, each armed with a marker, poring over the pages together, our eyes peeled for the latest toy offerings for our wish lists. As little girls, we quickly flipped past the “blue pages,” anxious to get to the pink section that would show us Barbie’s newest accessories. The first Sears Wish Book came out in 1933. Popular items included the “Miss Pigtails” doll, an electric (battery powered) toy automobile, a Mickey Mouse watch, fruitcakes, Lionel electric trains, a fi ve pound box of chocolates, and live singing canaries. Today’s children most likely don’t have this same experience, as the Wish Book is now available online (just like everything else in their lives!), with high-resolution images and interactive displays. But, what about your wish list as an adult, or more particularly, as a school leader? Hopefully, that’s where we come in. The issue you’re holding now is our annual roundup of some of the “latest and greatest” products and services to help you do your job more effectively and efficiently.
