A Spot of My Own

My Students

My classroom consists of 30 amazing students! Each student is ready and anxious about beginning their learning life in our kindergarten classroom. Our students arrive each morning, coming from one of the toughest neighborhoods of Chicago, and pledge to be their best, work their hardest, and be brave in the face of the day's challenges.

Our classroom prides itself on being a place where students come to be explorers.

Students are encouraged to act with integrity and compassion and we stress the importance of being active citizens in a world that does not always treat our students with kindness. Our students are strong, creative, and highly energetic. They are ready to be the next generation of men and women running this country.

My Project

In my dreams, A kindergarten classroom has ample storage and lots of space to store items and keep things organized. In real life, however, this Kindergarten classroom can get extremely cluttered when you have 30 students who need to keep track of their things. Pencils, crayons, and journals frequently get misplaced!

We are asking for 30 seat storage sacks that students can use to store their own supplies.

These seat sacks will help keep our classroom more organized, help tables be free of clutter, and allow students to be responsible for their own belongings. These seat sacks can help make my dream of a clutter free classroom a reality!
