Hurricane Florence Can't Stop Us From Growing! - Part 3

My Students

I teach twenty-two eager second graders in a Title I school near a military base. The students in my class come from many different backgrounds. Many of the students in our community are socioeconomically disadvantaged, with more than half of our students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Even with the challenges some of my students face, they come to school ready to learn every day!

I believe in putting kids first - every student, every day!

My students are an awesome bunch of kids! They are smart, creative, kind, and caring. They set goals and then strive to meet those goals every day and never give up! We have a supportive school family and community, but with fewer funds for classroom resources, we need your help meeting the diverse needs of our students!

Many of our students lost everything during Hurricane Florence. Our community and families are rebuilding and trying to return to some sense of normalcy. Our students need us to be strong and provide for them like never before. We, as teachers, need your help in rebuilding the strength and confidence of our students!

My Project

After experiencing this catastrophic hurricane and many students losing their home and belongings, we need to build a sense of family and community in our classroom. I will create a personal hygiene bag for each student to carry home. Each bag will consist of a toothbrush and toothpaste, soap, and shampoo and conditioner. This project not only helps my students, but there will be a few leftovers for siblings if needed.

Students learn best when they feel clean, safe, and secure - when their basic essential needs are met!

In addition to having personal hygiene products to keep them clean, I will also have socks and underwear for the students if they need them. Some of my students evacuated with only the clothes on their back and I want to have these vital clothes available for those that need them! I have also designed class t-shirts using my Cricut. Using the shirts from the project each student will receive a class t-shirt to help create a sense of belonging while recovering from the storm!

Please help me rebuild their strength, confidence, and sense of belonging as their parents are rebuilding their homes in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence!
