Recently Flooded. In Need of Supplies

Help me give my students a classroom carpet to foster the love of reading and bookcases to store materials that were destroyed by a flood.

My Students

In less than a month my classroom should be filled with 17 enthusiastic little first graders. I say should because on Friday, July 19th our primary school that houses K-2 was flooded. My classroom was filled with 9 to 10 inches of flood water. Due to the location of our school we did not have flood insurance. The amount of loss is devastating. Any material that has been contaminated is not permitted back into the classrooms. I have lost everything, both personal and district owned, that was stored on bottom shelving. This includes four wooden bookcases, my classroom carpet, and countless instructional materials. We are optimistic and doing all we can to start on time. However, these eager first graders may enter into a classroom full of boxes and stacked totes. I like for my classroom to foster a warm and caring environment that is aesthetically pleasing and comforting to all my students. Therefore, I am asking for donations for storage/ utility cabinets, as well as a classroom

carpet.

Thank you for you generosity.

My Project

My students who are entering first grade were kindergarten students in our building the previous year. They will enter the classroom with expectations to see their wonderful new classroom and all the wonderful learning materials. They will come in looking for their desks, cubbies, mailboxes, story carpet and recess toys. It is heartbreaking to think that they may enter a classroom full of stacked boxes and totes. I am hoping that by receiving these materials, my students will enter into a classroom that is ready and organized. Materials will be accessible to the students, flexible seating will be in place, and it will be a nurturing learning

environment.
