Good Rest, Strong Brains

My students need 20 new rest cots and sheets that aren't falling apart to rest on each day!

My Students

I have a very lively bunch of 3- through 5-year-old students. We like to do things hands-on so we are up, moving and using all our energy in positive ways! We are always on the go and always very busy! Therefore, our days need to be planned out with activities to meet the specific needs of the students! We are always actively engaged in our lessons and learning while we are having FUN! (Shhhh! Don't tell them it's work; it's our play and fun that helps us learn!)

My Project

My preschool students spend a lot of energy during the day learning and playing! They attend school all day long and have a rest time of 75 minutes in the afternoon. During that time my students need 20 comfortable cots to rest their bodies and re-energize for the rest of the day. Our current mats are starting to come apart. Some students do bring blankets to lay their bodies on a more comfortable space but some do not. Please help my students have a better experience at school by giving them a comfortable place to rest. I also hope to have 20 cot covers that I will take home each week to launder and return back to their cots so they are nice and fresh each week!
