Middle School PE Class Need Supplies for Health Awareness
City:  Houston, TX
School:  Holland Middle School
Teacher:  Mr. Ray

My students need:

Obesity is a problem in the United States and we want to try everything we can to contribute to healthy living with our students. That is why I am requesting basic Phys Ed equipment so my students can be exposed to sports to which that they would not usually be exposed. These will make a difference in our attempt to cut down on obesity in our community.


Making Montessori Magic Happen in Jacksonville
City: Jacksonville, FL
School John E. Ford Elementary School
Teacher Ms. Jackson

My students need:

I have 16 Montessori scholars living in one of the highest poverty regions in Jacksonville, FL. Ninety-nine percent of my students are receiving free and reduced lunches through our school's Title 1 funding. A large piece of the Montessori philosophy is creating a calm, welcoming, and peaceful learning environment which is why I am requesting new rugs, comfortable bean bag seats, and other soft seats to create a warm learning environment.
