Calm Gym Storage and Activities
Request from:  Jennifer Vargo – John Young Middle School

Our ‘Calm Gym’ activities currently include: Using computers, read a book, checkers, Uno and card decks. I would like to add activities like:  coloring, suduko, and games. I would also like to have four 3-drawer organizers which are lightweight enough to move out of the way for the PE teachers. These will help organize our activities.

Learning with Flocabulary
Request from:  Alaina Zannino – Hums Elementary School

I would like to purchase some student-requested books to update our classroom library.  Students are really enjoying reading from our class library, and have requested titles from some of their favorite series.  These books will be great for continuing to foster my students’ love of reading!  I would also like to purchase a subscription to the website “Flocabulary.”  Flocabulary contains educational hip-hop videos to engage students and increase achievment.  I have used some of their music videos in the past, and students love them are extremely motivated to learn using these songs!

Headphones with Microphone
Request from:  Rae Brough – Emmons Elementary School

I have students who need to work on different computer programs: Read 180, Systems 44 and Amira.  All of which require students to listen and then talk directly to the computer.  Headphones with the microphone attached are recommended for all of these programs as it allows the students to communicate easier.  It will also create a calmer atmosphere for the students as they are working.  Without the microphone the students are very loudly talking over each other.  The program then picks up the background noise from the other students and they struggle to complete their tasks.

Wish Amount: $175.92    Date Requested: 08/23/2022      Reference #: EM50


Flexible Seating
Request from:  Stephanie LeLand – Emmons Elementary School

I have quite a few students that constantly wiggle in their chairs and would benefit greatly from a different option to the traditional classroom chair. These would allow those students to be able to move as they are doing already, but in a safe way.

Wish Amount: $180.00    Date Requested: 08/28/2022      Reference #: EM51


Request from:  Stephanie LeLand – Emmons Elementary School

I would like to be able to offer more options to my morning STEAM bins, as they are very limited right now.  These bins provide the students a chance to work as a team or individually to solve a problem creatively. This encourages them to use critical thinking and to solve problems on their own. It also is helping them to develop some much needed team work skills. These bins would contain magnatiles, legos, dominos, brain flakes, pipe cleaners, and other similar building materials.

Wish Amount: $190.00    Date Requested: 08/28/2022      Reference #: EM52

These items are prizes that students can earn each month through showing an exemplar act of certain Life Skills (initiative, responsibility, friendship, pride, problem solving, etc. )from their teacher.
