Mrs. C. from Denver CO is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hot Child In The City

My students need to be able to breathe in order to learn! Fall temperatures in Denver are sweltering and alas, our dear old school has no air conditioning.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Low income, second language learners have enough to worry about at school without adding 100 degree classrooms in the fall. Crisp, cool air will invigorate our learning environment and allow students to focus on what is important, their learning.

My students are second language learners from Mexico, Vietnam, China, Central America, Eastern Europe and Africa!

Our school promotes inquiry based learning and international mindedness. My goal as teacher is to assist students in their assimilation into our school community. We focus on learning academic English as well as importance of maintaining and feeling pride for our own individual cultural identities.

My Project

We are requesting one air conditioner for our classroom so that students may learn in comfort. Fall temperatures in Denver often exceed 100 degrees and losing months of learning to a classroom of heat induced, lethargic, glassy eyed students has got to stop! These students need every minute of learning that they can get to keep up and compete academically with their native English speaking classmates.

Please help my students level the playing field by helping us provide a cool, healthy and productive learning environment with an air conditioner.

Comfort is key to providing a safe learning environment and sweaty, heat stroked kids cannot learn new information the way they would be able to in a cool environment. Help us stay cool at our international school!
