My students need fluorescent light diffusers to create a calmer atmosphere that is conducive to a quality learning environment.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Imagine walking into a room and immediately feel a sense of "calm". That is the way our class felt when we walked into the special education classroom of our new school.
My students are high energy, always moving bundles of joy!
They are not happy unless the are in motion, fast motion. We live in an area where our unemployment rate hovers around 18%. This contributes to the 80% of students that qualify for free and reduced lunch services. We recently moved into a brand new school, which we are so thankful for, however the entire school uses harsh fluorescent lighting. This makes our already active students somewhat "overstimulated".
My students would greatly benefit from the calming effect of these light diffusers because they would approach learning in an environment that is already calm. I am requesting enough fluorescent light diffusers in a cloud design and the accessories necessary to install them. No learning can take place when chaos and noise are rampant. With these diffusers, I would be giving my students a room that is calm, cool, and collected! As an added bonus, the company I hope to order from is a non-profit organization, that is a strong supporter of charities. They donate money to charities from every panel sold. By purchasing these light diffuser panels, I will teach my students about the spirit of giving.
In these hard economic times, teachers are not given the funds or resources needed to give students the quality learning environment they deserve.
Please help my students this year as well as my future ones, learn in a calm environment.
