My Students

My students and I attend a low-income and title 1 school. Majority of the students receive free or reduced lunch. There are many times when the only hug they receive is when they come to school. They are so appreciative and kind when it comes to giving and receiving. They are so eager to learn and this project will increase our chances at success. Please help if you can! I know they will be so thrilled and excited when this project is fully donated.

My Project

These seating options will make my students feel more successful. There will take ownership in their "new" and improved classroom. It provide a fun and different approach to learning. Also, this flexible seating plan will bring out their creativity and take their learning to a whole new level.

Students today struggle with the old-fashioned classroom seating.

They see a new contemporary style everywhere they go in the world. For example, fast food places, movie theaters, and etc. We need help to keep our students engaged and making a fun, learning environment. Please consider donating to this project. We appreciate every little thing.
