Ms. Chambers from Kansas City MO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Safety First!

My students need an Intruder Defense System and Buddybar Door Jammer to keep them safe during a classroom lockdown by securing the classroom doors so that I can attend to every child.

My Students

The students in my kindergarten classroom come from very diverse backgrounds. The majority of the children in my class are English language learners. Within our classroom, you will find students from Mexico, Cuba, Africa, and Vietnam. Every day, the students at our school come ready and excited to learn.

Our school motto is "If I Believe and I work hard, I will achieve." Our school is nestled in a little neighborhood that is rich in culture and poor in monetary funds.

The students at our school qualify for free lunch. Our school receives funding from Title I. Our students make use of everything they have and strive to make the best with what they are given. The students in my classroom are special because they believe that they will achieve if they work hard.

My Project

This project will provide school lockdown materials to secure the doors to my kindergarten classroom. The Intruder Defense System with a scissor closing system will secure the door leading into my classroom. The Buddybar Door Jammer will secure the door inside my classroom that leads to the closet and the other kindergarten classroom. This security system will allow me to focus on my 20 kindergarten students and their well-being.

Students in Kindergarten deserve to feel safe and secure at school.

Please help me to provide an environment that helps young children feel safe and secure as they learn.
