Mrs. Misty Letson from Valley AL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Rise and Shine Fairfax

My students need choral risers to help with special events. These risers would allow students in my school to be seen during performances and during award ceremonies. Every child in my school would benefit!

My Students

Students at our school come from a wide array of homes. Our students' learning needs vary as much as their basic needs. Many need additional support in their studies and must work extra hard to achieve at their highest potential.

My classroom is like a family and whatever my students need becomes a need for me, too.

I work hard to meet their needs and often find the help we need in friends and family. It is important that they know I care about them beyond the academics.

My Project

I am requesting risers for my school because we so often need them during PTO performances and Award's Day ceremonies. We have large classes and it can be very difficult to see all the students when they are being presented. I know first hand how important this is to parents and I want to make an improvement for my school.

Risers will allow each child the same opportunity to be seen and recognized during special occasions.

Parents will take pride in their child's performance when they are able to celebrate them more appropriately. I can't wait to see the difference this makes in our morale and support during functions!
