My Students

My students need life essentials to keep them healthy and happy. We are a Title I school. One student wears shorts in winter and has a thin sweater. He needs a warm winter coat and pants. Many of my students have dental issues with cavities and fillings and need toothbrushes and toothpaste for healthy dental hygiene.

100% of my students are minorities and come from a low socioeconomic background.

Some students are performing well below grade level, some are on grade level, and some are above grade level. Our school is a K-12 school and I serve second grade students.

My Project

One student is receiving free donated food on a weekly basis and comes to school in shorts and a thin sweater. He needs a nice jacket for winter. Many students have cavities and fillings and need toothbrushes and toothpaste for healthy teeth. Their baby teeth are falling out and they need to keep their adult teeth clean and healthy. The toothbrushes and toothpaste will help them have healthy teeth.

Many of my students have fillings and cavities.

I am hoping that the toothbrushes and toothpaste will encourage the students take care of their new, adult teeth that are growing in.
