Mrs. Sir Hendrey from Fort Worth TX is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Germs Make Us Sick!

My students need cleaning materials, wipes and soap to help keep our classroom germ free.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Coughing, sneezing, sore throats and a mess of "boo-boos". These are the sights and sounds of my kindergarten classroom, especially during cold and flu season.

Our school is an applied learning school where students' learning is primarily through project based activities.

The students are eager to learn. The majority of students in my class are English language learners. Because students are learning English, we focus on fluency and comprehension.

My Project

We will be able to disinfect and clean our work surfaces with the sanitizing wipes. With the hand soap, I can teach and demonstrate proper hand washing procedures to contain any germs that creep into our classroom. The most important part of this project (according to the students, of course) is the bandages. The best part about getting a "boo-boo" is the bandage!

Student achievement is closely related to attendance.

If we can help keep students from becoming sick, they will not miss vital classroom instruction. The students will learn proper hygiene and ways to keep ourselves and our classmates from getting sick. They will be at school! They will be ready to learn and succeed!
