My Students

My first grade classroom is full of discovery, excitement and knowledge. My students come in everyday ready to learn and grow. They deserve every opportunity to do this.

With your help and donations, my students can have the advantages they deserve to expand their knowledge in first grade!

Since many of my students come from low income homes, it is difficult for them to obtain the resources they need to enhance their learning. I want to be able to provide them with these resources and the environment to help them be successful all year.

My Project

My students do not have a clean, safe, orderly place to store their backpack during the day. Currently, we use tubs which increases the risk of backpacks getting mixed up, dirty, or materials being lost. Also, the tubs take up a lot of room in the classroom. When backpack are kept on chairs, students are distracted by them throughout the day or the backpacks fall on the floor causing a falling hazard.

This backpack cart will help keep backpacks out of the way, clean, and increase the safety of our learning environment.

We cant wait to have a new way to store our backpacks in the classroom!
