My Students

We were in school like a normal day not knowing what was to come. We thought we would be out for a few days. Most of the students took home a library book to use for remote learning if it came to that. It did come to that and more!

We didn't even get to say goodbye.

My Project

It is my hope that access to the items in this project will help meet the needs of students so that they are able to better engage in their online education.

This project supports students by providing everyday supplies to support their wellness - supplies that most of us take for granted.

The items in this project are all things that students used to ask me for on a regular basis: deodorant, chapstick, and toothpaste. Now that we are not together, I can not supply them with these items. But with this project, I will be able to make "Feel Good" bags! They will be distributed to the students in need. Students will be refreshed and ready to learn. Thank you so much for your help and support.
