My Students

Every day my students enter a safe, clean and friendly environment where they are able to flourish academically and be provided with government sponsored breakfast, lunch and snacks. Our school is a haven from a high crime neighborhood where lock downs and emergency sirens are common. Despite the outside environment these students know that they are our nation's future and though very young recognize their need for an outstanding education. Educating them for tomorrow's challenges needs to be addressed today.

My Project

During our school day my 2nd grade class spends valuable time sharing with each other. They read and collaborate in groups of four or by pairing as twos. A classroom carpet, large enough for all my students,would extend our possibilities. They could sit closer to other classmates and allow me easier access to their conversations to give feedback. Our previous old carpet was removed and replaced with tile. It's clean and practical but not cozy or inviting.

My students need a carpet to feel welcome while sharing.

The carpet will make our classroom more just like home. Please fund this project to help my 2nd graders more comfortable about attending school and learning.
