My students need 2 table top communication centers to store papers, artwork, parent communications.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
"Stop! Oh yes, wait a minute Mr. Postman! Wait, Mr. Postman...We've been waiting patiently..." but our mailboxes are in need of replacement! This is the second cardboard set in my career and this time, we would like wooden ones that will last a lifetime.
I teach a class of 20 second graders at a Title One school.
My school is multicultural and most students at our school receive free breakfast, snack and lunch daily. Many take "backpack food" home on the weekends as well. Many of my students have single parents and some have incarcerated parents. Many of these families face huge challenges and some are not able to provide the time and resources to support learning at home.
Like most primary teachers, the "mailboxes" serve many purposes. I use them to pass out papers I have graded (usually a student "Mailman" does the work). I use them to sort papers that I am saving for parent-teacher conferences. Children store notes for home, work that they want to take home, and prizes they have won from my "Treasure Box." I've been teaching 6 years with this particular set of mailboxes. The previous set lasted just over 6 years. I have no doubt that these durable wooden sets will last until I retire!
Organization is key to classroom management.
Mailboxes help me pass out papers quickly and efficiently. Students are able to store artwork, parent communications and school work until papers go home. With this set of mailboxes, my students and I will be able to keep organized for years to come.
