Ms. Borrelli-Luke from Camden NJ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a learnfit adjustable desk to adapt to the various needs of our students.
We are an inner-city magnet school in our district with a medical theme. My students come from all over the city, from all different schools, cultures, and backgrounds. In spite of the many obstacles, such as being homeless, my students achieve higher than all the neighboring high schools and have a 100% graduation rate and college acceptance rate.
Unfortunately, many of our students struggle with homelessness.
Our school is located in a low-income area with 100% of the students receiving free lunch. More than three-quarters of our students are from low-income households.
Most of our students select careers in the medical field. Their access to resources needed to prepare them for this path is very limited. DonorsChoose makes it possible for our children to have the necessary tools to succeed.
A large portion of our students are homeless and transient. They struggle with getting work completed. Many are faced with living in shelters, and most times are sitting or laying in bed. This learnfit desk will give students the ability to adjust desk from sitting position to standing. This desk eliminates that sedentary living, which impacts health and academic performance of the student. Giving the student the ability to adjust, move and stand promotes student engagement. More movement in class will help eliminate the risk of child obesity. This is one less thing homeless students will need to worry about, and allows them to focus on the future and all its possibilities with a healthier learning environment.
