Ms. Galofaro from Granbury TX is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Home Sweet Classroom

Help me give my students a classroom home. With new flexible seating furniture, we can create a more comfortable environment with that home sweet home feel. The heavy duty lab stools will be essential for ongoing years use!

My Students

My students are a dedicated, hardworking, imaginative, and resourceful group of kiddos. We are a 4th grade math and science class in a PK-5th grade, Title 1 school. While our district, and community, are fantastic at providing us the materials we need. There are still some wonderful, and much needed things, out of reach!

With almost 900 students present in our school, these are some of the most brilliant, bright, innovative, and passionate students that I have come across.

Their dedication and optimism encourages my passion each and every day!

My Project

Help us create a cozy home vibe in our classroom with new flexible seating. By adding comfortable ottomans, and heavy duty stools, we will be able to provide a variety of seating, that will last for ongoing years! The round ottomans will be essential for working at the small group table with the teacher. During this work time, it is crucial that kiddos are comfortable and focused. The heavy duty lab stools will assist in seating that will LAST!

Our classroom is our home away from home, and these products will ensure that!

The flexible seating that we currently have is deteriorating after years of love and it is time to upgrade for our students to have the best learning opportunities!
