Mrs. Ellis from Springfield MO is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hangin' Out for Healthy Kids

My students need the mobile backpack storage cart to hang their backpacks as they come into the classroom.

  • $309 goal

This project expired on November 7, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students come to school every day eager to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. They eat breakfast in the classroom and also take home food packs each week.

Most of my students face many hardships, so I do my best to make school a safe and fun learning environment for them.

Students work hard to earn school money to spend in our "Cents of Pride" store. Most pass right by the toys to get to the clothing and food.

My Project

This versatile, mobile backpack storage cart will be used to house our students' backpacks. Students will hang their backpacks on the cart outside the classroom door each morning. This cart has enough hooks for all of my students as well as storage space on the bottom for coats.

My students need the mobile backpack storage cart to hang their backpacks as they come into the classroom.

A healthy environment means a productive learning environment. Many of my students, as well as myself, have allergies that are irritated by students bringing backpacks to school that reek of tobacco and pet odors. Leaving our backpacks in the hall will alleviate this problem.

This will also free up space in their cubbies for supplies, book boxes, and journals.
