My Students

My Students love to go outside and enjoy the cool Vermont weather. Many of them walk to school. They also enjoy the outdoor classroom but are not always dressed for the weather

My students come from a diverse population with a variety of family structures and social -economic levels.

For some of our students this is their first winter in Vermont and are not prepared for how cold it can get. Students walk to school and go out for recess. Our school also has a outdoor classroom. Some of my students do not have the basic hygiene products available to them.

Please help me provide clothing to keep them warm on their walk to school and at recess. I would also like to give students the basic hygiene supplies to build self-esteem.

My Project

My Students go outside for recess and many walk to and from school. Some of my families have just arrived in Vermont and need warm clothing to keep them safe from the harsh winter weather. The Younger students will often need a change of clothes and do not have any in their backpack.

My students need warm socks, pants, leggings, underwear, snow pants and personal hygiene products.

Every child should have the clothing necessary to protect them from the winter cold and keep them warm. Properly fitting clothes and personal hygiene are important to build a positive self image. Please help me provide warm clothing and personal hygiene products to my students.
