My Students

Our high school is a small school with big school ambitions. The educators are continuously striving to make themselves better for the wonderful students who attend here.

The students are from a low income community and though they have handicaps they strive and push themselves to be the best students they can be.

Walking around campus you see the students smiling and it is such a wonderful and special place. These students deserve the best and all the opportunities that we as educators can give them.

My Project

The library our school is a wonderful place for the students to come in and check out a book, work together on projects and school work, or take a minute to rest from their busy day! However, the furniture at the library has been there since the library was opened about ten years ago. It is in desperate need of updating and also the furniture is not comfortable.

This requested Baxton Studio Sofa will make the library a more relaxed area for the students and improve the moral of the students.

They don't have comfortable furniture and getting updated library furniture will make such a difference for our students. The furniture in the library is also not conducive to collaborative work which is a big emphasis at our school.

Our students will appreciate this so much!
