My Students

My kindergartners are super fun, full of energy, and so eager to learn. They are part of an amazing multi-generational community that has fought hard to keep their school open so that their children have a chance in quality education.

More than half of my students are English language learners, many of them immigrants, and three-quarters of my students come from low-income households.

Despite the lack of resources in other parts of their lives, my students should have adequate resources at school to learn how to read, write, calculate, analyze, think independently, problem-solve, socialize, build relationships, and have fun! They are amazing kiddos who deserve an equitable educational experience that will help pave their way to lifelong academic successes.

My Project

We need to put a stop to the chronic lice situation that is going on in our classroom. Our kindergarteners love playing and learning with each other, but that also means that they're passing germs and lice on to each other.

I need my students to show up at school every day healthy and ready to learn, but the chronic lice epidemic is keeping my students out of school and putting stress and financial burdens onto their families.

With this FAIRY TALES Rosemary Repel Lice Prevention Leave-In Conditioning Spray, I hope that we can do the best we can to prevent lice from spreading, and my students will be able to focus on the important things at school like playing with their friends and growing their brains!
