Communication Is the Key

My students need 2 Tabletop Communication Centers.

Greetings! I teach a wonderful group of 20 first graders in a large urban school district. My students love to learn and are extremely hardworking.

On a daily basis, we generate a great deal of classwork and homework to disseminate and take home and share with our parents. Currently, we have an old metal and cardboard slotted shelf that is used to distribute student work and parent communication. Sadly, the metal is rusted, the cardboard is warped and the shelf takes up a great deal of floor space.

With this proposal, we hope to obtain two wooden communication centers that will sit compactly on a tabletop. Two are needed so that each student will have their own slot. We will be able to neatly and efficiently distribute work and parent information to all of the students. We will also gain much needed space in the classroom.

With your kind and generous support, my students will have a new communication center for all of their work and important parent notices. Thank you for reading and considering this proposal!
