Ms. Mueller from Hoffman Estates IL is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Place for Everything - A Seat Sack Rescue!

My students need a class set of seat pockets to keep our school supplies and valuables safe and neat.

  • $375 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Papers, pencils and notebooks, oh my. Students have so many supplies and such little space to store them all. Sometimes, despite trying our hardest to be neat and organized, our supplies spill out of our desks. Seat Sacks to the rescue.

As a regular fourth grade teacher, I can say that my classroom is truly what I can call today's American classroom.

I have students from all different backgrounds and walks of life. Each student is unique in his, or her, own way. Each is deserving of a great education and the materials needed to make that education a bit more fun.

My Project

I am requesting a class set of Seat Sacks, which are great organizational sacks that drape over students' chairs. Each Seat Sack has a place for our reading books, writing journals and pencils! These Seat Sacks will help to ensure that our materials stay organized, neat, and easy to find.

I want to give my students a great learning environment, but realistically I cannot self-fund the materials that are needed and my school cannot afford to purchase these materials for classrooms.

From low-performing to high-achieving students, all learning abilities can benefit from the use of these Seat Sacks. Your help will ensure that my students have the materials they need in order to continue to grow and blossom in my classroom.
