My Students

My students are from a low socioeconomic urban city. The young student leaders are eager to learn. They love school and the environment in the classroom. The students love reading, especially using online programs with Epic, IXL, and Freckle. However, the students do not have one-to-one devices.

The students and teachers participate in the Leader in Me program which teaches leadership skills to the students.

This program really helps students grow and learn adult social and behavioral skills. Most support for our students comes from the school and the school's staff members.

My Project

The portable air conditioning would impact my students greatly. This year and every year May sees 90 degrees or higher throughout the month. Our school does not have air conditioning. Imagine being in a building day after day in these conditions without air conditioning.

Now, imagine having to concentrate and learn.

My students lose concentration and effort in the hot months of the school year because they are too hot to concentrate. Air conditioning would make a world of difference for the students' classroom environment.

Please, help these students have a comfortable learning environment because they deserve it. Every student deserves to be comfortable and not worry about being hot during the day.
