Brain Breaks Can Be Fun!

Help me give my students the opportunity to play! Having desktop corn-hole games will allow students to play and have a well deserved brain break. The staplers will help me keep them organized with staplers that will last!

My Students

My students come from backgrounds far and wide. My school has a 100 percent rate of students who receive a free or reduced-price lunch. My goal for them is to allow the sky not to be their limit! My students choose to come to school rain or shine. They choose to make sure they are ready for the day. They choose to lead by example and not allow their demographic backgrounds dictate where in life they are going. They choose not to quit! Their will is why I am here and I will strive to ensure their confidence is not smothered by their struggles, and I will push them to reach their goals.

My Project

So often by the end of the school year students are tired, restless, and do not want to cooperate. Having corn-hole games for the classroom will allow for students to be out of their seat and allow them to have much needed brain breaks. These games will be great motivators for students to give their absolute best. My goal is their success! Staplers that will last will also help them stay organized and have materials less cluttered. Binders break, folders get lost, and parents have a hard time getting materials from their children. Having these staplers will help me help them.
