My Students

My school is located in a very rural area. Many are on free and reduced lunches. Several of my students are being raised by grandparents and great-grandparents. Although my students have many things against them, they participate with AR in order to have and be involved with reward parties, they strive for good grades in order to be recognized for various awards and most like the reward of a nice report card.

Come in and get comfy is the title of my project.

I would like to have new tables and chairs for my classroom so that when the students come in for their lesson, they will have nice tables and comfortable chairs to use when learning about life skills.

My Project

My classroom now is equipped with the leftovers of the school. My tables are a mixture of sizes and colors. My chairs are old, some are split and pinch their bottoms. It would be so nice to replenish with nice new tables and chairs in order to be able to concentrate on the lesson being presented.

We are needing better tables and seating for our counseling classes.

My students love coming to my class to learn about manners and other life skills. The tables and chairs will help our classroom environment. We would be able to do so much more if we had new tables and chairs.
