DonorsChoose for our Computer Lab

March 14, 2012

Ms. Jen has helped us put up a DonorsChoose project to get new seating in our computer lab. Currently we have chairs of only one size. We would like to get Hokki Stools of various sizes for the lab. We have a few of these in our ESL classroom

The HOKKI is an ergonomic stool that transforms stationary sitting into an activity, ideal for brainstorming sessions and other active sitting environments. The convex base allows for movement in all directions, which is critical to student development as physical movement both increases well-being and encourages the physical and intellectual maturing process.

Two for One Donations: Limited Time
Currently DonorsChoose is running a special promotion that matches donations. We would like to get the word out to our community and anyone else interested in helping with this project. Below is the information.

To learn more or donate, here is the info:

1. Visit my Teacher Page,

2. Choose my project on “Learning on a Hokki”, enter the amount of your donation, and click “Give”

3. During check-out, enter the word BLOOM where it says “Match or gift code”, and your donation will be matched dollar for dollar.

The BLOOM match code will double your donation until the end of the day on Monday, March 19th.

Staff Picks: Favorite Books

Throughout the year we will be highlighting favorite books selected by our staff members...


Title: Charlotte’s Web Author: E.B. White Staff Member: Mr. Colvin

Multnomah Country Library Link

"Before the movie, before the cartoon, was the book. The book and I are about the same age, having both arrived in the early 1950s. I was in fourth grade in Mrs. Stansell's class in Gold Beach, Oregon and she read several novels during the year, but the one that hooked me was Charlotte's Web. I have read it to every class I have ever taught since I started teaching. Plus I read it to my own two kids when they were around 9 or 10.
