Ms. W. from Liberty Twp OH is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Empowering Choice and Focus

My students need replacements for all of the lap desks. I provide my students with flexible seating. A popular choice is the floor or the video chairs and each need lap desks for their written work.

My Students

Our suburban school serves over 582 children in third to sixth grade. The kids come to school eager to learn in our safe, caring environment.

Our children have different cultures, life experiences, and academic backgrounds.

We take the time to learn about each individual and help them to achieve to their fullest potential. We strive to create life-long learners that are prepared to succeed in the world. We cannot do it alone. We all need to work together for all to succeed!

My Project

The new part of this project will be filtering the fluorescent lighting within the classroom to prevent glare, promote focus, and decrease the number of migraine headaches children have been having in the classroom. It also improves their mindfulness and mood.

Flexible seating empowers my children by giving them choice and ownership of their learning.

We need to replace our six lap desks. The most popular seating is on the floor or video chairs. Each of those options require the lap desks when doing written work.

Thank you for your support for empowering these children to become responsible, life-long learners!
