Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Project

Our classroom needs flexible seating options to create a more dynamic and engaging learning environment. Flexible seating allows students to choose where they work best.

This project will provide our students with a variety of seating choices to accommodate their diverse learning styles and needs.

Flexible seating has been shown to improve focus, engagement, and overall classroom atmosphere. By offering students a choice in where they sit, we can empower them to take ownership of their learning and find the environment that works best for them. We are requesting funding to purchase a variety of flexible seating options to add to our new library media center. These seating options(beanbags, wobble chairs, etc.) will allow our students to move freely and comfortably throughout the day, promoting better posture and increasing their ability to focus.

By supporting this project, you will help create a more inclusive and flexible learning environment for our students. Your donation will directly impact the way our students learn and grow, making a lasting difference in their educational experience.
