My Students

The physical population of the community displays lowered self-image and decreases aspirations when compared to those in surrounding areas. Many students live in substandard housing and their parents are receiving government assistance. Historically the area in which they live promotes lowered self-image, decreased academic achievement and lack of a personal belief system that offers success.

The area in which the students live has been economically disadvantaged due to major industries leaving the area and leaving the residents in poor working class status or unemployed.

The overall community struggles with an east-side, west-side concept, with students who live in and attend school on the east side area being considered substandard in both intellect and economics and physical abilities.

My Project

Students need a black light kit to show them the importance of proper hand washing. They also need antibacterial soap and guides to show them how to wash their hands.

Washing your hands properly can help prevent the spread of the germs (like bacteria and viruses) that cause diseases.

Kids don't always listen when parents tell them to wash their hands before eating, after using the bathroom, or when they come inside from playing. But it's a message worth repeating — hand washing is by far the best way to keep kids from getting sick , prevent the spread of germs and keep them in school
