Cooling Off

My students need 5 fans in our classrooms to use during the hot months of the school year. Our school building is very old and does not have air conditioning or ceiling fans.

My Students

I teach high school students in a urban, diverse area near the city. The district is in a high needs, low income area. Most of our students receive free or reduced price breakfast and lunch. We are small, but our students strive to achieve big dreams.

Each day our students come in eager to learn and excited by new opportunities not usually available to them.

We are in the process of integrating STEAM into classrooms and building maker spaces for exploration. We are fortunate to offer a variety of arts classes to our students including band, visual arts, media, chorus, technology education and wood shop.

My Project

In order to keep our classrooms at a comfortable temperature, we need fans in some areas of our building. Our school building is older. We do not have ceiling fans in most of our classrooms. In an effort to keep our students motivated through the hot days, we would like to put fans in the classrooms that need them most. Unfortunately, our yearly school budget is limited.

These fans would benefit our In-School Detention room, the Dean's office, and additional classrooms.

Although we have large windows and blinds, air circulation would be a wonderful addition to our classrooms.
