Mr. LaPorta's Hunt for Everyday Organization

My students need stronger and more efficient ways for organizing our technology, supplies, as well as everyday items to improve classroom productivity.

My Students

These students are being introduced to a Project Based Learning instruction model, where they are constantly working to solve real-world problems using projects and research. We work together every day creating, building, and deepening our thinking as far as we can go.

My students are brilliant kids, working to build the desire to learn and grow each and every day.

They push each other to do their best, push me to do my best, and most importantly, push themselves to do their best.

My Project

Organization is a never-ending battle. In the classroom, the struggle is not where to find everything, but where to put everything. Pencils seem to appear out of thin air, books get crammed into every inch of a jam-packed desk, and computers look like the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

With your generous donation, we will put these items to use every day in our fight to stay organized and extend our learning time.

We will be using the book bins for notebooks/storage, the sorters for better Chromebook organization, the cart for material storage, and the table for a more interactive work space for students. Thank you so much!
