Calming Fluorescent Light Filters

Help me give my students beautiful cloud covers for our harsh fluorescent lights!

My Students

My students are writers, readers, thinkers, comedians, explorers, and dreamers. Every day, we learn something new from each other. They have so much to offer!

I teach at a Title I school in Indiana where 55 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend, and our school also runs a food pantry for our families. Despite so many difficulties, my students work hard in school so they can have better futures and become who they want to be.

My Project

My school was built in the 1980's. It is a great building that has served our community well, but there are a few things that could be improved. One issue in my classroom is the fluorescent lights. Research has shown that fluorescent lights can trigger headaches, impact emotions, intensify stress levels, and even affect sleep cycles.

These cloud fluorescent light filters can be placed over the harsh fluorescent lights in the classroom.

These beautiful filters will make the light easier on all students' eyes. This will help create a positive learning environment that will benefit everyone who enters the classroom!
