My Students

Most of my students are disadvantaged students coming from low income families. Despite the challenges they encounter, they are enthusiastic, motivated, and eager to learn.

94% of my students come from low income families.

My classroom is the computer lab. All the students in school come to the computer lab once a week from pre-kinder through fifth grade. In the computer lab they use programs that help them reinforce their reading and math skills.

Most of these students do not have a computer at home so they are very excited and appreciative of the time they get to spend in the computer lab.

My Project

I am asking for 30 chairs for the students to use in the computer lab. We need chairs that are comfortable and at the same time durable because of the high volume of enthusiastic students that come through the computer lab. Having comfortable seating in the computer lab will help the students to pay more attention because they will not have to move around due to discomfort.

All of the students will benefit because they all come to the computer lab once a week.

With your support of this project, the students will be able to use computer lab friendly seating instead of the uncomfortable chairs they currently use in the computer lab. They will be more comfortable and more attentive thanks to your generosity.

Thank you for your support.
