My Students

Our students live on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in Oglala Lakota County, South Dakota which is one of the poorest counties in the United States of America. We are located in a small community surrounded by other smaller communities, so our students come from these different communities to be here at school on a daily basis, which means some travel for over an hour a day to be at school. Our school and community is the center of the reservation. My students are energetic, smart, and eager to learn new things on a daily basis. I would like to give them a beautiful and comfortable learning environment that will have classroom chairs that match, are comfortable, and in decent shape!

My Project

We currently have 20 students in our classroom, and 20 chairs as we do not have the money for classroom furniture, what we have is all we have. We also have chairs that are not in the best of shape. I would love for our students to have matching decent chairs that can all safely stack in a corner at the end of day. I would really like for our classroom to have enough chairs for student desks and for reading/math center table. It would also be so nice to have extra chairs and also have a neat environment with matching chairs! Thank you!
