Clean Air-Clear Minds

My students need items to improve air quality in the classroom because of allergies and sickness caused by Harvey.

My Students

My students are, without a doubt, challenged. Many are economically disadvantaged with little parental support. Some struggle with emotional needs. Most have been displaced at some level by the flood following Hurricane Harvey. Even my honor students struggle with stability in the chaos of the aftermath.

My students need to reach their full potential, and I want to be a part.

They are weary and unmotivated due to the stresses of "life after Hurricane Harvey." Many are ill due to exposure to poor and dangerous living conditions. School is a safe haven for many of my kids.

They deserve something GOOD!

My Project

Sickness and allergies are commonplace in our school, especially due to Hurricane Harvey. An air purifier and air-purifying plants will help create a cleaner, more focused classroom environment.

Clean air will help take the focus off sniffles and sneezes, and onto schoolwork.

Computer labs can be awfully plain. This project not only will help keep our classroom air cleaner, but will also beautify it. Students will take responsibility for caring for the plants by watering them as needed and by adjusting lighting to keep them healthy. The rug will be used as an anchor for a presentation area in an otherwise drab technology lab.
