Classroom Supplies

We collaborate with teachers to provide supplies commonly found in affluent classrooms and homes. We want our teachers to have the supplies they need to make learning time more effective.

Headphones

It seems the teachers never have enough working headphones for every student. Earbuds do not work well for kindergartners and first-graders; little ears need over the ear headphones. One kindergarten teacher spent $400 of her own money so all her kids would be equipped. Our support is needed!

Quiet Feet

Tennis balls on chair legs reduce the noise level in the classroom! They also make it possible for little people to slide chairs around, as needed.

Sponsors: Ponte Vedra Inn & Club provided the balls and Roger Mann, Board member, cut a slot in each one

Under-Chair Baskets

Under-chair baskets are an inexpensive item. However, installing them takes time! It is as if you need to be an engineer to install the baskets where little feet will not inadvertently break them. Thankfully summer volunteers handle the installations.

Colorful, plastic book bins for headsets, etc.

It seems the book bins rarely store books. Instead, they are used mostly to store headsets and loose papers. Most classrooms desire a row of colorful, interlocking bins. Summer volunteers label the bins with student names.

Aussie Pouches

We are testing out a new chair seat back with storage pockets. One first-grade classroom that didn’t have any seat pockets is trying them out. Instead of a light blue canvas, these new seat backs are a denim blue. We are hoping that the darker color will hide dirt better. Plus, denim is more flexible than canvas making them easier to wash.
