My students need a locker system that works for them.
The metal lockers in our classroom seem as though they are older than our building. Most of the doors will not close, and the ones that do close stick to the point that the students must tug and pull to get them open. This needs to change!
I serve 22 first grade students who live in the heart of the mountains of Eastern Kentucky.
They are bright, energetic, and extremely eager learners. They are at a very critical time in their lives, the beginning stage of reading, writing, and math. Their focus should be on learning, rather than what they do not have or what they need.
The material I am requesting is a locker system. These lockers will replace the metal lockers we have issues with. Currently, our locker doors do not completely close, and the ones that do must be tugged and pulled at to open. Students are at the point of leaving their backpacks on the floor outside of the lockers due to the difficulty in accessing their things. These new lockers will eliminate this concern. They are made of wood, without doors, and have much storage. These lockers are at the appropriate height level, allowing students to access their lunch boxes and backpacks without the help of an adult. This new system will provide independence for every student.
By donating to this project, you will be making a true difference in the everyday lives of my students.
You will be providing them free access to their materials without the assistance of an adult. Be a part of providing a gift that will continue to give year after year, the gift of independence and access to their personal belongings.
