Ms. Vidal from Berwyn IL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Breath of Fresh Air

My students need a LEVOIT Air Purifier to guarantee they are breathing the healthiest air possible and basic school supplies.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our school is a Title I school, where I teach first grade students. According to last year's statistics, 493 students are enrolled in our school, 82% of whom live in high-need households. 36% are considered English language learners, and 8% are reported to receive special education services.

My students are the second class of dual language learners in our school.

As a dual language teacher, my goal is to provide the resources my students need to learn, explore, and create.

My Project

I would love to protect my students with a LEVOIT Air Purifier. Since Illinois is one of the 30 worst states for air quality in America, I want to ensure nothing hold backs the education of my dual language students. After all, poor air quality is the last thing that should be hindering kids’ learning growth.

The LEVOIT Air Purifier removes 99% of airborne allergens, leaving nothing but clean air into students’ delicate lungs.

I am hoping to provide all my students a breath of fresh air. The LEVOIT Air Purifier will help my students' health and wellness, while the basic school supplies will provide them with a solid start to the school year. The Mead Primary Journals, whiteboard markers and erasers, and colored paper will be essential components of our literacy block. With your help, my students will have clean air to breath and basic school supplies to develop their literacy and creativity in reading and writing. Please consider donating!
