Seating for Reading!

Help me give my students a comfy place to sit and enjoy a good book!

My Students

Our elementary school is a public school which serves families in Alaska. Our program includes a Chinese immersion track and a neighborhood track. Our school community is diverse and we have many students who are new to the United States.

By supporting our grant, you will be directly benefiting the over fifty-five percent of our students who are economically disadvantaged.

Students at our school receive free breakfast and lunch because so many come from families that are struggling financially. Our students come from diverse backgrounds. Some of our students' first languages include Spanish, Nuer, Filipino, Tongan and Korean.

Helping us acquire these low tech STEM materials for our library makerspace which will enable us to better support our STEAM curriculum and enrich student learning. Giving students direct access to these materials will give them hands-on opportunities to experiment, create, collaborate and learn.

My Project

We don't have much in the way of comfortable seating where students can get cozy with a good book in our library. After doing some rearranging, we now have an open space bordered by our graphic novels, biographies and fiction just waiting for some fun, functional seating.

Our school is busy trying to return to normal after the big earthquake of November 30th.

Thankfully, we didn't sustain too much damage but many of our students and teachers are still struggying with the residual stress the earthquake (and the numerable aftershocks) have caused. Your support would help freshen up our space and help us start a new chapter!
