My Students

We are a quaint little school in a neighborhood that feels like a small town in a big city.

At our school, classes are small and everyone is treated like family.

The majority of students come from low-income households and have limited resources, yet we have an extremely active PTA. We take great pride in the level of parental involvement at our school. My students are bright and engaged. They have a love of school and have a love of learning.

My Project

My students need coolers to keep our lunches cold on field trips.

I hope to provide every kindergarten class with two coolers.

The coolers are insulated and have wheels to make it easier for the teachers to transport them. Currently, we take sack lunches in milk crates with a bag of ice. Teachers frequently have to take lunches on and off the bus and carry them to the designated area in the venue. The cafeteria staff will be able to load the coolers and pass them to the teachers to quickly load the bus. The process would be greatly streamlined. These coolers will lighten the load for all of the teachers.
