Dear Families & Friends of Class 1-121,
I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the first half of the school year! I am writing to inform you that I have started a classroom project request on a 501(c)3 charity website called DonorsChoose.org. DonorsChoose.org is a nonprofit organization that connects public school teachers with people who want to support classroom learning.
For our classroom project, I have requested support in getting furniture including bigger desks and chairs; along with clipboards and individual dry erase boards for the students in our classroom. The desks and chairs we have now are a bit too small for the students in our class. As the year is going on and the students are growing, they have trouble keeping their chairs pushed in and fitting their legs under their desks. I would love for the students to have enough room to sit in order to be comfortable throughout the day.
I’m writing to ask for any donations possible for our scholars – no matter the size, it will help tremendously. If you know anyone who is passionate about education, please pass this along. Your tax-deductible donation will have a direct impact on the 31 scholars in our class (and many more in the future), and you’ll hear back from the class about your impact on our learning!
