Comforts for Colds

My students need kleenex, hand sanitizer, a pencil sharpener and a water heater to help make our classroom more like home.

My Students

Cold season is here and my classroom needs kleenex and hand sanitizer to help control the outbreak of infections. As a comfort, I would like a water heater that I can provide herbal tea for students that are sick. We also need a pencil sharpener.

I have ~40 students in each Biology class.

Students often come to class when they are sick because they don't want to miss school and get behind. 240 students passing in and out of my classroom everyday makes a recipe for an outbreak. Please help me contain the contagions.

My Project

We need a water heater for students to make tea, kleenex to blot those runny noses and hand sanitizer to keep the germs at bay. All of these items will help make my classroom more welcoming and ultimately, help students learn science. Our pencil sharpener just broke, and needs to be replaced.

Sometimes, it is just the basic necessities that need to be met before learning can happen.

All of these items will help provide the basics, so students can concentrate on learning science.
