Help me give my students a healthy, clean, and comfortable library with cleaning supplies and safe stools to sit on.
My school is a Title I school that serves approximately 400 students in grades 6-8. Nearly all of my students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch and some have no permanent home. Despite this, my students work extremely hard to overcome the many obstacles that they face on a daily basis
One of the best parts about my school is that we have such a diverse background of students.
Many may not come from prosperous backgrounds, but they soak up every opportunity they have to learn, and this project will help the library gain materials that will encourage my students to be engaged in our lesson by helping them focus their attention in a positive manner.
Middle school can be an awkward time for students. They are full of energy, and with that energy, they have a hard time staying focused and on task. My students who suffer from ADHD and other special needs have an even harder time staying focused. Unfortunately, this can cause them to fall even further behind. This project will provide the library with four comfortable and reliable stools for my students to sit on while researching topics on the computers. These computers are on a raised counter that will give them the option to stand and work, or sit on these stools. We have a set of stools now that are around 15 years old and they are falling apart. They have so much movement to them that I am afraid that one day a student is going to sit on one and it is going to collapse on them. Yikes, we can't have that!
These stools will allow my energetic students options to be able to get that energy focused in a positive and safe manner--allowing them to concentrate on their learning.
It is a win-win for everyone!
With energetic middle school students this time of year, unfortunately, germs seem to spread quickly and we need to replenish our supplies for the flu season. I am happy to see over 200 students a day, but you can imagine how quickly illness can spread with that many students. Students who are at home sick are losing valuable school time, and I want to do all that I can do to keep all of my students here, healthy, and learning! The cleaning supplies will help us keep the library a clean, safe, and healthy place for everyone.
