Cleaning Up the Germs so Real Learning Can Happen!

My students need clean areas, so that what the Lysol and paper towels are for. Skittles are small incentives to help encourage them!

My Students

I will teach Third grade at a Title I school this year, which means most of my students are economically disadvantaged. With this program, I want to expose my students to things they would be able to have if it weren’t for donations from generous people.

This will be my first time teaching Third grade!

I love to see children’s bright smiles every morning. It is such a great feeling to know I am able to teach so many students and show them that learning can be lots of fun.

My Project

Kids will do some good work for skittles! The little rainbow of colors will make any child leap into action. Having little things like this allows me to reward or motivate the kids. We have to buy these things out of our own money so I thought I’d try to get it Donated!

Having a germ free room makes a BIG difference!

Requesting cleaning supplies - wipes and paper towels - may seem odd but attendance is the key to a successful year! Every chance I get to cut down on the amount of germs around is a chance I will take daily!

With your donation, I will be able to have a successful year.
