My Students

Our school is a Title I school. Most of our students are from low income families and environments with a lack of resources. School is an important place for my students because they are provided with the resources needed to be successful. They love school and enjoy learning despite their circumstances. My students deserve a high quality and interactive learning experience. As you know, students are expected to perform on high level with challenging standardized tests. My students need your help!

My Project

We would love a classroom rug that is big enough to fit 30ish 5th graders will make a huge difference in my students’ learning. First, they will have adequate space to learn...they won’t be cramped or uncomfortable. It will allow us ample space to hold our daily classroom meetings. We will also use it as our gathering area during our whole group lessons. It is also an area that students may sit or lay on during independent reading time. Classroom rugs give the classroom a homey feel. Environment is important. I know my students for many years will enjoy a classroom rug.
