Tucson Country Day school is asking for donations after three juveniles vandalized and stole from the school last weekend.

Tucson police arrested the three juveniles involved. 

Principal Deborah Anders says it was a former and current student along with an unassociated student.

"A lot of hand sanitizer was dumped on books and desks, keyboards and monitors and paint in a classroom so that was flung on a teacher's desk and on the white board, boxes of paper clips, tacks and  staples were strung around the room so  they were all over the floor," Anders told KGUN9.

The school suffered thousands of dollars of damage to 29 classrooms.

Speakers, cameras and an iPad were stolen, Anders believes they had a key. 

"Some of the kids in crew said they have seen videos on Snapchat over the weekend that the former student had posted that showed him at school so that is how we kind of got the name of who we thought might be involved in this is some way," Anders told KGUN9.

Tucson police say the students threw school property into a nearby dumpster.

If you are interested in donating to help the school in replacing the items that were vandalized, more information can be found on their GoFundMe page.
