Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Project

Students will need drinking water throughout the school day to stay hydrated. Our school is located in a low-income neighborhood in an aging building. None of our school water fountains will be available for students use.

Many do not work and those that do won't be safe for students to share due to the pandemic.

The majority of the fountains that work will be shut off to avoid illness spread. Students will be asked to bring their own water to school via personal water bottles. The materials I am asking for are 5-gallon water jugs that will be used with a tabletop water cooler that can be used to provide students with access to water throughout the day.

As our public school students return to school buildings, many will not have access to drinking water as water fountains are turned off due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

By providing our classroom with the water jugs, caps, jug stand and dispensers we will be able to provide students with fresh water from a safe to use source. This will keep their thirst at bay and keep them focused on learning.
