Alaska 11/30 Earthquake Help

Help me give my students Emergency blankets in the event of another natural disaster.

My Students

Our middle school is one of the most diverse schools within the Anchorage School District! Many of our students come from low-income households, while some do not. Students come from neighborhoods and all over the city to receive some of ASD's best educational offerings. Some of our students belong to one of the schools special programs, Spanish Immersion, Russian Immersion, or Highly Gifted. Our school also has many student-athletes, participating in cross country running, basketball, volleyball, wrestling, cross-country skiing, and track. Students also have the opportunity to join in other programs such as Debate or Mathathletes, and we are the reigning champion in both programs!

Our middle school has hundreds of amazing students who come to school excited and ready to learn!

Our Mission Statement: We, the community of R. Middle School, will create an environment where students and adults come together cooperatively to strive for academic achievement and social-emotional growth. Our diverse community encourages responsibility, promotes honesty and cooperation, challenges students to seek an intercultural understanding, and empowers students to have respect in order to achieve success today and in the future.

My Project

Many people across the nation and world heard about the massive 7.0 earthquake Alaskans experienced at 8:29am on November 30th. High School and Middle Schools were in session when the earthquake struck. It was very scary for students, teachers, parents, and our community, but luckily everyone survived. Our Anchorage community will continue to heal and be there to support our Anchorage School District students.

When the earthquake shaking slowed down at Romig Middle School, we were able to evacuate all students and staff.

Students did what they were trained to do and that is to leave everything and get outside. The temperature was 28 degrees when we got out. Students had to wait outside for about an hour before we could enter the school again. Part of the healing process is improving our status for our next big shake. Scientist say there will be hundreds of aftershocks over the rest of our school year. We would like to provide every student a space blanket so that while they wait outside they are warm and comforted. We are asking for funding to be able to purchase 100 emergency blankets for our students.
