I teach Kindergarten at Liberty Elementary in Liberty, Mississippi. All of my students receive free lunches. As a matter of fact, all of the Liberty Elementary students receive free lunches. We come from an extremely poor school district. Many of our students are members of single parent, welfare homes. Outside the classroom, my students do not have much to be excited about. That is why I need your help. I want to make our classroom as comfortable as a home. I want it to be a safe haven where my students can learn what a loving, nurturing environment has to offer. By experiencing this, I hope that they will remember and grow up to do the same for their own children. I am asking for carpets, cuisinere rods, kitchen sets, bean bag chairs, a book shelf with books, and other items that will make our classroom cozy and welcoming. I want my students to "run" to the "living room" for reading time. I want them to "relax" in the "kitchen" for snack time. I want them to enjoy the comforts of home while learning. This home lab will benefit 32 Kindergarten students each year, as well as the other three Kindergarten classes who will share with us on occasion. Like that old saying "there's no place like home." I want my students to go home and say "there's no place like school."
