Mrs. Ammons from Anthony NM is requesting supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Personal Hygiene Kits for All Students!

My students need these supplies so each one can get a personal hygiene kit to take home. They will receive deodorant, a toothbrush, toothpaste, and a bottle of lotion.

My Students

Although the middle school where I teach is between two larger cities, it is very secluded and sheltered. In fact, a great majority of the students have not ventured out of their area. We are a Title I school and serve free breakfast and free lunch to all students who attend. A huge majority of the 110 students are English Language Learners (ELLs) and are either first or second generation Americans. This creates extra challenges to ensure that all students receive differentiated instruction to order to meet their needs.

My students live in a high poverty area and need help accessing personal hygiene supplies.

More often that not, students miss school because of the lack of basic personal hygiene supplies. If they do come to school, many times they are embarrassed. It is our hope to offer each student a personal hygiene kit so that no one student is singled out.

My Project

We all want to feel good about ourselves by having good personal hygiene. However, not all students have equal access to items such as deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes or lotion. These are things that many of us take for granted. However, think about the kid that doesn't have access to deodorant and has to sit in class next to his or her peers. There are many different reasons why my students face problems such as these: no running water at home, no money for "luxuries" like these, or no one at home as taken the time to teach them how to have personal hygiene.
