My Students

My students live in a low socioeconomic area and all students receive free breakfast and lunch each day. They all come to school with a smile on their face and enjoy school and learning. They are hard working and want to do the best job they can possibly do. Many of my students are below grade level and need resources to help them succeed. As a school, we have a very low budget so we rely heavily on grants and donations to help our students receive the best learning experience that we can possibly give them.

My Project

These materials will make a huge difference to my students. Many of my students have ADHD and need to be able to have some movement throughout their school day. I want my students to be able to have the choice where they want to sit each day. As much as I would love to get all of my students flexible seating I unfortunately cannot afford it.

My students would greatly benefit from having these bouncing balls and air pump so it can be another option for seating in their classroom and so they have an option to sit where they learn the best!
