My Students

The students that will benefit from this project are special in so many ways. They enjoy learning and have a love for enriching their education. Students in this classroom range from an assortment of academic areas and socioeconomic backgrounds. Students at the school have incredible character and love to spend time with their peers. They are compassionate and helpful toward one another and help each other grow both academically and socially. The atmosphere of our school building is one that lends itself to building depth of character and authentic and life applicable learning.

My Project

Relax and keep calm sums up perfectly what this Donor's Choose project is all about. Students will enjoy a calmly lit classroom that is inviting to learn and grow in. Having a soft lit classroom naturally alleviates many of the anxieties and stress that students carry with them to school each day. Students will also have several items they can use to relax themselves. Some of the items are: stress balls, magic stress putty and several other relaxing and calming items that allow them to focus on their school work. Having these items in the classroom would be a fantastic addition to our learning environment.
