Drying Up After The Flood

My students need relief from this disaster and need their school back. Thank you!

My Students

I am a 7th grade Math teacher and an 8th grade Science teacher at Denham Springs Junior High. Our students were recently devastated by the flooding in Louisiana, a lot of my students lost their homes as well as all their newly purchased school supplies. We had 6 days of class before this massive flood tore through our city destroying everything it came in contact with, we will rebuild and come back stronger than before. I am so grateful for any and all of your help trying to rebuild my classroom to give my students some "normalcy" during these trying times.

My Project

Our school took in 4 feet of water, this destroyed nearly all of the supplies we had bought. These materials will help my students come into a classroom that is prepared for them. These supplies will help replenish what my students have lost as well as what our classroom has lost from the flood. Most of our students not only lost their school but their homes as well. If our students are able to come into a classroom that is well stocked it will restore a bit of normalcy for them. Thank you so very much for all of the help.
