Worry Free is The Way to Be

My students need 10 storage bins, one for each class, so they can leave their books in the classroom.

My Students

Isn't it the little things in life that make it easier? By having bins in the classroom for my students to leave their books in, I am helping make their lives a little bit easier.

I have 310 8th grade students.

They are eager kids that love to learn by asking questions and participating in different activities. Many of my students come from disadvantaged homes. It is my hope that from my health class I can teach my students "life skills" that will help them make good decisions in their future.

My Project

With all the state tests and changes that have been put on my students I want to help make their lives easier. The materials I requested would help make my students lives easier because they can leave their notebooks and folders in the classroom, instead of worrying about carrying the books around school. They can arrive to health worry free and ready to learn.

Your donations will help improve the quality of life for my students by providing them with a worry free environment in my classroom.

I also know that these containers are durable and can be used year after year.
