New This Year!

Please visit DonorsChoose.org to help us get flexible seating for the library.


Reading and collaborating are key elements in every student's education. By adding bean bag chairs to the school library, students are invited to find a comfortable and relaxing place to read. Bean bag chairs also allow groups to pull their seats together in any area of the room to collaborate and share ideas.

Bean bag chairs provide the flexible seating that allows students to read comfortably and collaborate in small groups while eliminating other instructional issues.

The comfort of the bean bag chairs will help to minimize fidgeting and distracting behaviors. The ease of moving the bean bag chairs will make forming collaborative groups quick and easy. The mobility of the bean bag chairs will also help students move away from distractions without losing their comfortable seating.

Thank You!

New Carpet for the Library Has Been Fully Funded!

Our first DonorsChoose project has been fully funded thanks to several generous donors in MD and one in NY!

We eagerly await the arrival of a new area carpet for one of our two teaching areas. This new carpet will serve as a seating area, collaboration area, and above all, a place for ideas and learning to grow.
