It is hard to concentrate when when you are sitting in a hard metal chair for almost six straight hours. I teach English to 60 middle school students and while I have equipped my classroom with comfy ottomans from Bob's Discount Furniture and a large rug for students to work on, sometimes using a clipboard just doesn't work. Desks are needed to spread out textbooks and books and necessity requires students to be at a desk for the majority of the time. Some of my students require movement in order to focus on their schoolwork. Keeping their body moving helps to keep them engaged in the lesson. Others, while not having this specific need, would also benefit from moving around more during learning. Sitting on a yoga-style ball instead of a hard metal chair will work student's core muscles and keep their brain active. An active brain in the classroom will help with concentration and attention and allow students to focus on their learning. I would like to purchase 25 yoga-style balls to replace the chairs in my English classroom. These balls will replace 24 student chairs (with one extra in case of accident) and allow students flexibility and movement during learning. Thank you!

Saint Joseph School is a small not-for-profit, pre-K through grade 8, Catholic, value-based school in West Warwick Rhode Island. In addition to our hometown, we serve students in Warwick, Cranston, Coventry, East Greenwich, and Johnston. For over 90 years, SJS has provided quality, enriching, and meaningful educational experiences at a low cost to hard-working families who seek an alternative to a secular education. We are engaged in a focused effort to create a hands-on science program. This project is multi-phased. 1) The SJS science curriculum is being revised to meet the 2015 NAEP frameworks. 2) A dynamic lead science teacher who emphasizes the discovery process to energize middle school students. This has been accomplished. 3) Purchase science kit and materials. Priority will be given to physical and life science materials. In addition to this campaign, SJS has a financial backer who has agreed to match the contributions. So any monies collected through Adopt-a-classroom will be doubled.
