My students need water bottles to keep well hydrated throughout the day.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Happy, energetic, hard working, and active second grade students enter my classroom each weekday. A handful of these students have ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), a couple ADD (attention deficit disorder), another with Autism and many labeled advanced learners.
My students want to hydrate often to increase health and learning.
Each child has a story to tell. Each one has a challenge or strength to share. The goal in our classroom is to help each one of us use our strengths to overcome our challenges. My students want to be healthy, confident and comfortable each day at school.
When students are thirsty, their mental performance deteriorates by 10 percent. My students want water bottles at their fingertips so they are not distracted by their thirst. One little boy said, "When I'm thirsty, I am tired." Another little guy said, "When I'm thirsty, I'm irritable!"
We want to stay hydrated to increase our health and learning, teacher!
My kids believe this easy access to water will help them achieve more because their health and learning needs are met. This second grade group doesn't want to be wasting class time standing in line behind an old water fountain that produces luke warm water. They want to get in a healthy, important habit of regular water intake to improve their healthy learning environment.
