My Students

The students in my classroom are a diverse bunch. Some students live in the neighborhood, and the others are bused to our school from the various neighborhoods in our district. Our school has an ELL program in which many of my students participate.

Many of my students come from financially challenged families and they qualify for free or reduced lunch at school.

These children are excited to come to school and spend quality time with their peers in a supportive learning environment.

My Project

In our fourth grade classroom, we work with many resources, including textbooks, notebooks and folders. Our student desks hold the textbooks well, but there is not enough room for the notebooks and folders. Some student chairs have Seat Sacks, which work wonderfully to hold the notebooks and folders. The remaining student chairs do not have Seat Sacks, and those students must store their notebooks and folders on their desks or on the floor. Now we need Seat Sacks for the remaining student chairs.

Seat Sacks for our students will help to make them organized and better focused.

Having a neat, open work area is important for student success. Seat Sacks will certainly make our work area neater and more open for student learning!
