I am a Learning Consultant at Adams High School. I am seeking your help to raise enough funds to create a “Take A Minute” Calm Environment Space that is more inviting and serene to accommodate and comfort to students with special needs, 504 and/or IEP, anxiety disorders, or any student struggling with social emotional health while taking assessments or working on projects outside of the classroom.
This is my proposal’s compelling why…
Often times, students with special needs, be it a 504 accommodation plan, an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), Generalized Anxiety Disorder, or any child struggling with his/her social and emotional health seemingly feel more comfortable taking assessments or working on assignments and projects outside of the classroom in a non-traditional, quiet and calm setting.
It is our desire at Adams High School (AHS) to create an environment of tranquillity and quiet to accommodate and comfort this unique population of students.
With the use of alternative seating, study carrels, privacy screens, and an area rug to control noise, we feel these students will be able to cope better with their test anxiety and consequently, improve their assessment performances.
Moreover, students can access the space to receive extra classroom supports, particularly in math and language arts.
♥ This is where you can help! ♥
Help us reach our goal!
Currently, we do not have appropriate furniture to accommodate the amount of students who are accessing the room.
With your support, the following items and furniture will be purchased to create the “Take A Minute” space and provide students with the opportunity to self-regulate, refocus, and reduce stress, anger, and/or anxiety and be fully engaged in the learning process.
Thank you for your consideration!
Any donation is appreciated!
