My Students

This is my first year at this school so I’ve been settling in and learning about my students. The school has made some huge changes to better reach every student and raise achievement. They are kids that need adults they can trust and who love them through the baggage they may come with. Helping kids to be comfortable in the classroom is key to success. These 4th grade students have a whole team of teachers rooting for them. Will you become their cheerleader also through this donation?

My Project

I’d love for each child to have a flexible seating option such as these wobble cushions. I have moved and shaped the classroom based on student needs but this seat is popular with them. We would love to have more of these for each student to have their own. They love to use them in regular seats to give some wiggle ability and also on the floor if they just need to get into their own space. Will you partner with me to make this happen? Thank you for considering our class to be a recipient of you generous donation. We look forward to our new seating.
