Clean Lab, Healthy Students!

My students need paper towels, tissues and disinfecting wipes to clean their lab stations so we can stay healthy!

My Students

I teach ninth through twelfth grade science in a small-town high school in a suburban/rural area of West Virginia. More than fifty percent of our students are from low income households and receive free or reduced price lunch. Our high school is the largest in our county, but would still be considered small by most people.

I have three science classes which include special needs students.

Each class has twenty-nine to thirty-two students. Although we are bursting at the seams, I still prefer to teach by experimentation. The students love doing lab activities. I believe they learn best by doing!

My Project

Currently, we are down to two rolls of paper towels in the classroom. We have no tissues and the cold season is coming soon. Our school doesn't have money in the budget to purchase these consumables and I cannot ask students to purchase them. More than fifty percent of our students come from low-income households. Although we do conserve, it takes quite a bit when you do as many activities as we do. I teach hands-on Forensic Science and Environmental Science. Our lab activities usually involve sinks and liquids. Paper towels are a necessity!

I would like to be able to clean their lab tables and desks with disinfecting wipes so we can stay clean and healthy during the cold and flu season.

I would also like to see the students clean up their own stations after a lab without having to sneak paper towels from the restrooms.
