My Students

My students are dedicated, hard-working, and creative individuals who take their education seriously. They always strive to do their best and help fellow students that need assistance. Our school is a dual language Mandarin school that increases in diversity each school year. Of my 140 students, approximately 20 percent are English Language Learners and Special Education students. I see my students working to grow as individuals and learn more about the world and others each day.

Many of my students worry about the quality of the water in our building and I want them to feel assured they are safe.

As my students grow as scientists, they become more aware and concerned with the environment. I see the future of our planet in my students and I want them to be equipped with knowledge and the tools they need to keep themselves and our environment safe.

My Project

The donations for this water filter system will provide my students with safe and clean drinking water while they are in class. My students continue to grow concerned with the environment and specifically with the quality of drinking water in our building. I want to provide them with the opportunity to feel assured that they are drinking water free of various contaminates and helping the environment.

This water system will serve as a reminder that we are dedicated to protecting our environment and ourselves.

I want to encourage students to make small changes that can can ultimately have a large impact and help many . In addition to providing safe drinking water, this system will reduce waste and resources associated with bottled water and help our planet and its creatures.
