We Need Chairs!

My students need new chairs in the library computer lab. The fabric chairs we have now are old, falling apart, and there is just no money in the budget to replace them! Help us out!

My Students

Success comes from ambition in play and hard work. Our students are kind, caring, big hearted, creative, outside outside of the box thinkers! They learn how to succeed with limited resources and this outside of the box thinking. Our students are willing to try new things and choose to create and innovate!

The school's philosophy is to seek ways to be the best school in the area, not merely to educate young people for productive employment, but to inspire them to become life long thinkers, problem solvers and contributors.

The Board believes spending money on education is an investment that reaps not only the immediate benefits of increased student numbers and community support, but that also ensures today’s students will become tomorrow’s thoughtful and creative entrepreneurs, civic leaders and environmental stewards. While neighboring districts have cut programs and options, our school has responded to growing student interests and needs by expanding its before-after school and summer school programs, increasing its financial commitment to Youth Options, and broadening its use of other distance and virtual learning options.

Community and school staff members agree that holding high expectations for achievement and providing choices to learners are keys to building a successful educational

My Project

This new project is simple, WE NEED CHAIRS! Unfortunately, that's just not in the budget.

New chairs will definitely make a difference in student learning!

How? Well, the old chairs are falling apart (if you lean back too far the back might fall off). The old chairs are fabric and hard to clean in a school (these chairs have been around for a very long time). New chairs would be easier to clean and disinfect! The design is also nice, appealing to students and community members.

The design of the new chairs in the library fits the needs of all of our students and will last for years to come.
