Mrs. Pequignot from Harrisonburg VA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Keep Calm and Inspire On!

My students need to be inspired so this project starts with letter boards for every classroom in our school so that teachers can display encouraging quotes.

My Students

My classroom is an inclusion kindergarten room. We have students with many different physical, emotional, academic and social needs. We are accepting of everyone and work collaboratively with each other to solve problems and complete tasks as a team. My students are energetic, fun, sweet, carefree, loving and highly motivated to learn. They are an awesome group!

Our school continues to find more ways to include all students in the activities that we are involved in.

We all go the extra mile to make our school a great learning environment for every student!

My Project

Aesop once said, "No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted." At our school kindness counts and we are constantly trying to find ways to spread positive feelings amongst our students. We want them to feel inspired to take on their daily lives with courage, an open mind, creativity, and kindness. I've been making small signs and magnetic art for teachers to hang to remind everyone that what they say and do matters. I am ordering letter boards for every classroom at our school. Each teacher will have the freedom to put whatever happy thought, author quotes, or words of inspiration on their board. We want our school to be a happy place for students. We want them to feel safe and loved and ready to learn.

Imagine walking into a classroom and reading a quote about an adventure, imagine the anticipation you would have for that day.

Or maybe the teachers will use these boards to highlight the awesome things that their students are doing inside of the school. I think the possibilities are endless. These boards will be used daily and for years to come.
