Stults Road Elementary Teacher's Lounge
Stults Road Elementary is one of our local Title 1 schools without a parent sponsored PTA. They have an outdated teacher’s lounge also used for band practice, community ESL classes, after school events, etc. We need to update this lounge as a community! We are Lake Highlands residents Angela Ponce, Melanie Martin and Renee Barfoot of Martin Barfoot Real Estate, Jeanne-Marie Gisellu of whiteSTAGED, and Andrea Speer and Tiffany Marx of Altered Interiors and have spearheaded this redesign for this deserving school and staff. This room has barely been touched since it was constructed in the 70s and when we saw this need in person, we knew we had to help. We have drawn up a design plan to make it a dual purpose room and something the community can be proud of. Lowe’s has signed on to donate new cabinets, paint, lumber and manpower. The money you donate will go toward a refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee maker with a years worth of coffee pods, sofa, two armchairs, rug, 24 stackable chairs, and accessories. Lake Highlands... let’s love on this school that is a sweet part of our community!+ Read More
Today was the day!! Thanks you and your donations my team and I, the RISD District and Lowe's were able to give the teachers and staff of Stults Road Elementary a teachers' lounge to for sure be the envy of all the district! This school is more than deserving. They put ALL of their physical, mental and emotional energy into the their student, they deserve this and so much more. My team and I have full hearts today and you the donors made it happen. THANK YOU!
Wanted to update everyone that since this small campaign began the district has seen our call! They are abating all the old cabinetry, installing new flooring and doing all the painting for us! We’re couldnt be more thrilled! The money we have raised so far will cover the very badly needed stackable chairs (24) but we still need to buy 2 refrigerators that Lowe’s will be selling us a a greatly discounted price (100 each!) A sofa, 2 arm chairs and accessories. I know it’s a crazy time of year to ask for help, but here we are and we are installing on Jan 3rd. We will close this campaign down at the end of this so that we can purchase the items we need so if you are lead to give any dollar amount is helpful and so appreciated!! Every time I update the. counselor she gets teary so I promise this will make a difference in this dedicated staff’s daily lives. Thank you truly!!
