Hey all, this year is my first year working in a classroom instead of cleaning it. All our kiddos are Star Wars fans and love seeing my pictures from events I have done in the pass. Most of these kiddos have both behavior and/or medical issues that qualify them for our classroom.

That being said, we could use some positive cards of encouragement. We have a few that are in foster homes, or should be in foster homes because their home life is so bad.

Any cards or letters we can get I can turn into a geography lesson. We can reply back to anyone that wants to start a conversation. Would love to have other classrooms write us

We are also looking to make around 6-10 “weighted” fleece blankets for those kiddos with sensory issues. They fight over the two we have. So if you ever have any extra Star Wars fleece fabric, we work for scraps.

We will be doing a SW cupcake sale to raise money for some noise canceling headphones. If anyone wants to send us a pair or two, we would appreciate it.

As always, thank you for all you do. I am proud to call myself a member for all we do for special needs kids.

The class has finished the map. We will soon be adding flags on it.

We are looking for any letters or postcards. If you have a classroom, would you consider a pen pal type exchange?

If anyone is interested in helping by sharing my message with your home club, we would greatly appreciate it. We now have 9 of the 22 noise cancelling needed and a second weighted blanket.

The West Virginia University Star Wars Club is planning to do a fundraiser to help out. They didn't have time before the holidays.

Would it be better to send a check or have the headphones shipped directly to you?

Headphones to the school would be better. I’m afraid a check would get used elsewhere in the school. We have added three more students since January 1st, so any help would be appreciated. Thank you again to those that have helped out.

Expect a delivery tomorrow. They would have come today, but school was cancelled. It helps when the company is right down the road from you.

I’m so glad that they will work for you. They weren’t too expensive, either.

I'm going to have my Star Wars Club at school tomorrow make some cards and color some pictures for your students. We are very interested in communicating further in the future. I will IM you my direct e-mail through the forum messenger.

I want to thank everyone that has helped our classroom so far this year. With the 7 new move in’s we are serving 6 more kids than we planned/budgeted for. The noise canceling headphones have been a big help. Thanks again.
