My Students

My students live in a small community in south St. Louis. We are a community school. The students come from many different countries around the world. Most of the students walk to school each day because they live very near to the school campus.

Families choose our school because they want a smaller school environment where the students are treated like family.

Some of the families we encounter have been with us since we started this quaint, little charter school. Our families and staff are always striving to make our school a better place in the community.

My Project

I am looking for help purchasing a class set of durable headphones for my Title 1 classroom. I test all of the students in the school three times a year. The regular headphones are fine for the bigger students, but not a great fit for the kindergartners and first graders. The Flex-Phones headphones are made of softer and extremely flexible foam.

First time kindergarten students tend to be a little rough on regular headphones and they break easily.

I just had to throw away 4 pairs of headphones after kindergarten readiness testing. It is not the kiddos fault. The headphones are just made for older students. They cannot take the wear and tear of a five year old. I would really appreciate your help with this project.
