Coach Pitts from San Antonio TX is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Providing a Safe Classroom

Help me give my students the first aid they need since we are located far from the nurse's office. We are two buildings over.

My Students

My 668 students attend an elementary school in Texas. We are a bilingual school and 87% of the families are low income. I am the Physical Education/Health Teacher for all these students (Kinder-5th).

My students need first aid quickly.

My gym is not close to the nurse's office. I am first aid and CPR/AED certified. I do have an AED in the gym, but I do not have a first aid kit that accommodate the amount of students I see in the gym daily.

My Project

All students should receive a safe environment where they know if they get hurt, it will be taken care of immediately. When a student feels safe, they are great learners. The material will be used to give first aid immediately after an incident happens in the gym. I am first aid, CPR/AED certified. The nurse will be contacted but sometimes it takes her 10-20 minutes to come to the gym. She is very busy with kiddos inside and just can't leave. If I send a child to the nurse with blood dripping from a scraped knee, it can cause others to be exposed to body fluids.
