My Students

Our school is a welcoming community-based, neighborhood school serving a diverse group of students and their families. With over twenty different languages represented in our building, we are proud to be one of the most diverse schools in the United States. We are a Title I school where the staff and students take pride in our diversity and community support. Our staff is dedicated to the continuing academic success and the social and emotional growth of all students. Our school challenges its students to make good choices, expect respect, and strive for excellence. Our students are some of the most kind, loving, and generous students you will meet. In addition to that, these students deal with many issues at home. The overcome poverty, language barriers, and cultural barriers on a daily basis. As a school community, the staff does all it can to support our students and show them the love they deserve.

My Project

Please help me give my students flexible seating options for when we come back to school. I currently have 31 students, and there is no way I am going to be able to space them apart with our current seating arrangement. I would like to make my 5th grade students as comfortable as possible when we return to the classroom. Flexible seating is beneficial in so many ways. Sitting in hard chairs all day is not good for their growing bodies. They need to be able to get up and move around, stretch out, and get comfortable.
