Mats Needed To Rest Their Little Bodies On

My students need mats to lay on during rest time. We have a very busy day of learning /playing so by mid day we need to relax for a bit to "recharge".

My Students

There are 18 adorable students in our class. We are one of two pre k classes in the school The school is a Title 1 school which means that the population of families in the neighborhood are categorized as low income families. My students are well behaved, respectful, "delicious" children who are eager to come to school every day to spend time with me and their classmate friends to socialize and learn. These students are the future hope for this neighborhood.

My students are well behaved, respectful, delicious children who are eager to come to school every day to spend time with me and their classmate friends to socialize and learn. We have rest time every day after lunch for 45 minutes and the mats they are currently using "have seen better days". We need to get them new ones to rest their little heads on. These students are the future hope for this neighborhood.
