Ms. Meade from Oak Creek CO is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

High School Water Bottle Filling Station

My students need a fresh, filtered water bottle filling station to increase water consumption throughout the school day for hydrated brains that are ready to learn.

My Students

As the school nurse, I see students who have headaches and a lack of focus and energy every day. Often times these students are dehydrated and unable to perform at their best in and out of the classroom.

My students are in grades K-12 in rural NW Colorado.

They play hard and study hard. Whether on the playground, hallways or in the classroom they need to feel their best in order to succeed. Drinking plenty of water is an integral part of the staying healthy.

My Project

My students will be able to refill their environmentally friendly water bottles during the school day and during sports practices. We will save disposable plastic bottles from area landfills, while making hydration efficient, delicious and easy. Students will have access to free, fresh filtered water any time they're at school, as will staff members and visitors.

This project will improve student health while protecting our environment.

Students will have easy access to the healthiest beverage choice around -- water! It's clean, free and zero calories!
