Help! Need Classroom Furniture

Lee Elementary is a poorly funded school servicing mostly low income students.  One of the biggest challenges is seating 35 students in one classroom.  We currently have a hodge podge of very heavy, outdated, and in some cases broken desks and tables of varying sizes and heights which do not allow for collaborative seating arrangements or a project based style of teaching.

There are such huge funding discrepancies between schools in and around Oklahoma City.  I chose to work for this school because these kids are great kids who just need that extra push to be successful especially in math and science.  I would like to incorporate project based learning in the classroom as concrete, hands-on learning is critical for this demographic. 

The purchase of 12 Econoline flip top tables in the classroom will allow 3 students to sit together at each one.  As the tables will be identical, they can be combined allowing for larger collaborative arrangements.  With caster wheels, they can easily be moved.  When not in use, they can be flipped and stored for easy classroom cleaning.  Because space is at such a premium, this campaign also seeks to fund a mobile teacher workstation.  Most teacher desks are large and bulky.  This workstation is compact and also has caster wheels allowing it to be ideally placed according to the different classroom layouts.

I am hoping to fund this project before the start of the 2018-2019 school year.  Anything you can do to help out is much appreciated!
