I am requesting this item on behalf of our entire student body.

Plastic Magazine File Boxes
Request from:  Stephanie Cowman – Intervention – LaSalle Elementary School

LaSalle has expanded their Read 180/S44 groups.  Time is limited with these intervention groups, so organization is vital to optimize learning time.
These magazine boxes will create organization so students can come into the room, grab their materials, and get to work.  Plastic magazine boxes will be more durable than the cheaper cardboard version, so they’ll last longer.

Seat Sacks
Request from: Candace Lafferty – LaSalle Elementary School

My students have many supplies such as books, crayons, papers, pencils, etc. Using tables in kindergarten is what works best for the classroom, however, the downfall of that is that we have no storage for students. I have used my own money to purchase seat sacks from the dollar tree and unfortunately they have fallen apart rather quickly. I am having to staple or re-sew them very frequently as they are not sturdy enough to hold all of our supplies. I would love to buy some new ones that are better quality that will last for more than one year. It would be so great for students to have somewhere to store their belongings that is going to be reliable and trustworthy.
