Mailboxes, Etc.

My Students

I teach first grade students in a high poverty school that uses inquiry based learning throughout our school day. My school has a 40% mobility rate meaning that almost half of my class that starts the year with me will move and be replaced by a whole new set of students by the end of the school year.

My students are hungry for knowledge and are eager to learn.

They are active, smart, and funny kids with a passion for learning and having fun. I want to give my students the opportunity to be creative, think critically, collaborate, communicate, and have a sense of community while learning and utilizing the arts. I also want to allow my students to express themselves and demonstrate their knowledge.

My Project

My students have been using a hand me down mailbox center for their cubbies. We received this mailbox center from a fellow teacher who no longer needed it. It has served us well over the years, but we are now in need of a replacement. I currently have 25 students in my class and only 24 cubbies them to store their work.

Your donation would give all of my students their own space to store their mail and work.

Currently, one of my students has to place his work in front of the storage center and his work ends up on the floor. This new mailbox system has 30 cubbies, which will be more than enough for all of my students. Please help my students have a place to store their work in a new mailbox center that has enough space for all of us!
