My Students

Located in Fall River, our elementary school serves nearly six hundred children. Despite the challenges of poverty we are a level one school and our children love to learn.

Many of our students have experienced loss and our music class needs the materials that will engage and absorb students who come to school looking for a safe place to learn and grow.

Our music program serves students in integrated inclusion classrooms, as well as in substantially separate programs for students on the Autism Spectrum and the Medically Fragile.

My Project

I plan to create a quiet corner for students to use before meltdowns occur and Letting them fidget can keep students focused on learning! I'm requesting a Balance Ball Chair and Bean Bag Chair for seating choices.

The ECR4Kids The Surf Portable Lap Desks will let students rotate through learning stations.

The built-in movement breaks will be beneficial and calming. When students are in control, and they're able to behave much better when feeling responsible. Please help us expand our music room seating options to more child friendly options.

Research by a number of experts supports this fidget-friendly mindset. A 2008 study found that children actually need to move to focus during a complicated mental task.

I've already planned where and how to these materials. I need your help to get them through the door!
