Chair seat pockets not only “dress up” the classrooms, they make lesson-to-lesson transitions more efficient. Students store their folders, pencils, etc. in pockets on the back of their chairs. All seven kindergarten and first-grade classrooms needing seat pockets were furnished Aussie Pouches. Made of denim, these seat backs have multiple pockets, are washable, and will serve our young students for years to come!

Big Book Displays, Kindergarten Classrooms
Did you know kindergarten teachers read very BIG books to their students? Every kindergarten classroom now has a Big Book Display. The displays are the perfect height for the teachers to turn the pages as they read aloud to the kindergarteners. The base has drawers for horizontal storage of the big paperback books. As an added bonus, the small dry-erase board can be rolled around the classroom for use in small-group learning.
Sponsors: Roger Mann designed and assembled these Big Book Displays. Barbara Willson funded the components.
Kindergarten Print Station
Kindergarten classrooms now have a print station! Prints and copies can be made in black/white and color.
The ability to make a spur-of-the-moment print/copy will help our kindergarten teachers help our little students.
Sponsor: Bill Henning donated of this high-powered printer and extra toner!
Colorful, plastic book bins for headphones, etc.
It seems the book bins rarely store books. Instead, they are used mostly to store headphones and loose papers. Most classrooms desire a row of colorful, interlocking bins. Summer volunteers label the bins with student names.
