We'll Have A Ball Learning!
City:  Buffalo New York
School:  South Buffalo Charter School
Teacher:  Mrs. Britzzalaro's 

My students need:

My students are at-risk first graders who attend a Charter School. Like most 5 to 7 year old children, they require lots of movement, yet concentration is vital to their learning. I am requesting 7 stability balls which will engage my students and aid in increasing their spinal column and blood circulation, while strengthening their core muscles. As a teacher, I feel responsible to ensure the best environment and tools necessary to ensure excellence of learning in my classroom.


Going for Gold in Winter Olympics
City: Cleveland, OH
School Charles Dickens At Corlett 
Teacher Ms. Tucholski

My students need:

Who hasn't wished they were an Olympic athlete, standing on the gold medal stand and hearing our National Anthem being played as a medal is draped over their head. Well, that is what I want my students to experience in our school wide Winter Olympics. To that end, I am requesting various materials to allow us to have a school-wide Winter Olympics to coincide with the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia. With your help, my students will get that gold medal experience.
