A Rug for Rugrats

The cost of this proposal is [price], including shipping and [fulfillment].

I teach third grade at P.S. 130 in the South Bronx. I have been here for the past three years...so has the rug that my students sit on. I have had the same students for the past two years (we moved up together) and their little bottoms have worn out our carpet. We use the carpet NO LESS than two times a day if not more and it shows! My students love coming to the carpet for read-a-loud time and for independent reading as well. Lately they have been upset because of the condition of the carpet. I want my students to feel comfortable and at home and I think that a brand new rug for our classroom would really help them feel this way. For some of them, it may even feel better than home because of some of their economic situations. I hope that our class will be granted this wish (maybe even in time for the holidays) and I hope that everyone has a safe and happy holiday season. Thank you for your support in the education of our students. A rug 9' x 12', plus shipping and a disposable camera cost a total of $325.
