Mrs. Osorio from Sun Valley CA is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Personal Hygiene is as Important as ABC!

My students need personal hygiene items, such as deodorant, soap, toothpaste, shampoo, and toothbrushes to stay clean and boost their self-esteem.

My Students

I have 29 wonderful 5th-grade students, which include special education students, magnet students, English Language Learners, and intervention students. They are very enthusiastic about learning and are always eager to explore new things. They love coming to school every day, and always have a big smile on their faces, despite the socioeconomic hardships they endure in the community in which they live. They attend a school in California, in a low-income neighborhood. The school is both a regular and highly gifted/magnet institution. However, my students are part of the regular school and do not have access to the materials and enrichment activities that the magnet students have.

My Project

My students are reaching that time in their lives when hormones start to change and puberty is starting to kick in. They are blossoming both mentally and physically and they are becoming self-conscious about how they look and how others perceive them. Thus boosting their self-esteem is an important part of their education and well-being. We have been learning about puberty as part of our health unit and students are witnessing those changes in their own bodies. For example, they are now more aware of their bodily odors, especially after recess and P.E. and sometimes feel a little bit embarrassed when sitting next to their peers during collaborative groups.

I would like to provide my students with the essentials to take care of their bodies so that they feel more confident and comfortable with themselves.

In turn, this will help improve their self-esteem and allow them to concentrate in class and participate freely in group work without having to worry about their personal hygiene. I strongly believe that if the students' basic needs are met, their academic engagement and performance will be impacted in a positive way.

Thank you in advance for helping bring this project to life so that my students can have the essentials to meet their basic needs.
