Even Big Kids Need Band-Aids!

Help me give my students bandages and band-aids so I can treat minor injuries in class.

My Students

I teach in an urban, diverse school of 3,000+ students in the heart of Central New York. A typical classroom can have students from Myanmar, Somalia, Bosnia, and Belarus learning side-by-side with students who have never left the state. It makes for quite an interesting teaching and learning experience!

It is my goal to make my classroom a safe and versatile space where students can reach their fullest potential!

Our school is, even by our state's own calculations, drastically underfunded. We are a refugee relocation city, and many of our students are the sons and daughters of newly arrived immigrants. Built for 2,000 students, our school is incredibly overcrowded. Teachers share classrooms, students share textbooks, and space is at a premium. Students often do not have access to even the most basic of learning materials, and teachers either pay for it out of their own pockets or the students go without.

My Project

We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to be in person without interruption since September! We are doing our very best to keep students in school and this means plenty of tissues, hand sanitizer, and of course masks! We don't want our students to miss any more school than they absolutely need to due to COVID quarantines, and so I try to avoid any reason (other than restroom breaks) for students to have to leave.

I am looking for a classroom supply of bandages.

Having a classroom stock of band-aids would alleviate the need for students to leave for the nurse's office for minor cuts and scrapes.

Let's keep these kids in school AND in the classroom!
