Cool Air for Our Autism Class!

Help me give my students air conditioning for a calm and cool classroom environment.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are all in our program called Communication Behavior classrooms. My students all display different forms of communication, behavior, sensory, and social needs, typically with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder.

The strengths and challenges are unique to every student and my goal is to provide them with the most appropriate resources and best education that I can!

We are a classroom of about 10 students with so many great personalities. Every one of my students and staff are each a perfect piece to the puzzle!

My Project

Our school serves low-income families in a very large school district in Oregon. Most schools in Portland, including us, do not have air conditioning. During the months of May to September it can get quite hot outside and our classroom gets even hotter! The kids and classroom staff are often sweating and miserable, even with drinking lots of water. The classroom environment is very important for our kids to focus and do their best work to learn and grow each day.

Due to the lack of funding opportunities for classroom necessities, we are hoping donor's choose can keep us cool by helping us getting an air conditioning system!
