New Vacuums after Relocating!

My students need vacuum cleaners so that they come back to the classroom everyday with clean carpets and a functional learning environment.

My Students

Despite the odds against them, from day 1 my students have come to my classroom with the eagerness to build a love for literacy. During the storm my students not only suffered in their homes but in the classroom as well. Being at school makes the teachers work even harder to prepare our kids for a bright future! They will eventually be prepared to go out into the world with the love of literacy.

Families have been displaced and students have missed many days of school.

Our entire libraries and reading area were ruined. The winds and waters of Hurricane Harvey have destroyed our school and everything within. As we are eagerly rebuilding new and improved facilities to strengthen education in our neighborhood and beyond, we also continue on our mission to learn, lead, and be great.

My Project

New vacuums will allow our custodial staff to clean in a timely manner. Our staff works really hard to make our classrooms feel like a second home.

The new vacuums will allow students to come into class with a fresh start not only in their minds but in the classroom when they read and sit on our carpets.

After Harvey, it has been very hard to replace items and by donating to my project it would help not only the custodial staff but the teachers and students as well. Thank you for your support and all you do for my students.
