My Students

Our middle school students are in need of a big change. After having an open dialogue with them, we discovered that comfort and investment are major components of their success. We are looking to change our seating around as a way to increase both. Our vision is based on research and experience; we want our students to have a learning environment that helps them feel invited, safe, and engaged. By removing desks and building in more comfortable options, our hope is that we will see increased focus and engagement.

My Project

This campaign is part two of an effort to overhaul our current classrooms and create flexible seating. With this round, we are looking to raise money for our floor cushions and bands for desks. Our classrooms will include a variety of seating options such as: standing desks and bean bag chairs (thanks to our AWESOME donors from round one), picnic style chairs, floor seating, small tables, and individual desks. We are always looking for ways to reach our students; this change is the first of many that we hope will keep our students engaged and learning. Your support on this journey means everything to us!
