Mrs. Poplawski from Plains PA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Clean Air in 4th Grade

Help me give my students clean, germ free air with a new air purifier filter. This will help prevent students from missing school constantly due to getting sick often as well as kids who suffer from allergies.

My Students

I teach about fifty-five amazing fourth-grade students, which includes special education students, English Language Learners​, and intervention students.

My students are very enthusiastic about learning and are always eager to explore something new.

They love coming to school every day and always have big smiles on their faces. They attend a wonderful school in Pennsylvania. These students enjoy learning and exploring every day during their math and science classes. All my students learn differently and this is why I like to have a wide variety of options for them available daily.

My Project

As a teacher, I see how detrimental it is for students to be absent. When students get sick, they are absent from school, thus falling behind in class. This causes them to be discouraged, stressed out, and often negatively impacts their grades. An air purifier cleans for a healthier environment and helps create a more comfortable learning space.

These air purifiers require new filters at least every 6 months otherwise they are just filtering dirty air through a dirty filter, so we need a new filter.

A few of the most common things inside our classroom (or anywhere really!) are dust mites, mold spores, pollen, etc. worsen eye and skin irritations, asthma, lung infections, breathing difficulty, illness, and the list goes on.

An air purifier is desperately needed and will help my students immensely. An air purifier is important because it will quickly and quietly clear allergens, germs, viruses, pollen, dust, mold spores and other pollutants present in the air. Students who suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory conditions will be provided with relief when having a classroom with an air purifier.
