My Students

My students are in 9th through 12th grades. C.S. is listed as a "fringe" rural community by U.S. News and has a 40 percent free/reduced lunch population.

We offer a comprehensive educational program that strives to meet the needs of all students.

We uphold a core curriculum that meets or exceeds state and national standards and offers a full complement of extracurricular, athletics, and fine arts programs.

One of our guiding principles is that we will develop all students to become educated, self-confident, responsible citizens in a changing world. We want all children to develop to their full and wonderful potential.

My Project

Each year students express concern that the equipment used during labs might not be clean or safe. To help reduce some of these concerns our class has increased the amount of time we spend disinfecting and cleaning after lab days.

The supplies in this project will help this process happen efficiently and with the proper materials.

Gloves, disinfectant wipes, and soap will ensure our materials are not just clean but also safer for the next class to use.

From past experience students feel much more at ease to use lab equipment and goggles when they know the materials have been cleaned by a previous class.
