Ms. Milo from Port Arthur TX is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hurricane Survival Enforcement

My students need equipment to create sample home-safety kits that residents can utilize during emergencies caused by natural disasters. This is very critical to our project because our students will present the information to the city council.

My Students

My middle school is located in the heart of Port Arthur, Texas - where learning is an invigorating, life-changing, experience. What makes our students special?? Not only are they young, ENTHUSIASTIC, leaders of tomorrow, but even when times get tough, they manage to hold their heads high, chins up, and, chest out and get their jobs DONE!

Help us, help Port Arthur, and ourselves better prepare for emergency weather situations as Hurricane season rapidly approaches!

Coming from an area where vulnerable populations are high in number and most resources are limited, our students KNOW the demographics they are dealing with and want to become change agents. THEY ARE READY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

My Project

The materials that we are requesting to be funded will be utilized to put together natural disaster home safety kits.

Each kit will include a DBX Cruiser 2 Person River Tube, Carlisle Economy Canoe Paddles, a Field & Stream Adult Universal Life Vest, and a geckobrands Backpack Cooler to store drinks and food.

These kits can be created for households to survive in the case a severe storm or flooding takes place.

The students will then present the kits to the city of Port Arthur city council and propose that each home be equipped with these kits on a mandatory basis, greatly improving the chances of survival during natural disaster.

This lesson connects design with science and civics as we learn about weather systems and their impact on our community. The students will take charge of this project as effective advocates of their community!
