Great Hygiene Provides the Foundation for a Powerful Learning Environment
My students need basic personal hygiene necessities that are essential for good self-care.
My students are in need of essential hygiene products. The students are residents of the Englewood Community on the south side of Chicago. They have dreams and aspirations. Parker students want to learn, be successful, and contribute positively to society.
Having the basic necessities are crucial for students and their academic success.
Students should not be defined by limited resources. Many of the students are exposed to community violence and financial hardships, but have the drive and ambition to be successful.
As a social worker, teachers regularly ask for hygiene products for students. When students are aware that I may have hygiene products that will ask for products as well. It is difficult for a student to concentrate when basic needs are not met. Good hygiene is essential for students. Appropriate hygiene provides for a powerful learning environment.
I have witnessed how improved hygiene increases students self-esteem and feeling of self-worth which leads to higher academic achievement.
Students must be prepared before entering the classroom. The burden of outside worries shouldn't interfere with the student's learning process. I am asking for these essential items to help improve a child's self-esteem.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
