Summer Is Around The Corner-Fan Needed

My Students

I am a second grade teacher in Pennsylvania. My classroom is made up of 30 eager second graders. I also have a wide range of reading and math abilities in my classroom. I am the teacher with the ESL friendly classroom. This is my second year having the ESL classroom, and I would like to accommodate more students that speak different languages.

My reading levels range from pre-kindergarten to fifth grade.

It's important that I read with these children every day in order to get them on grade level by the end of the year. All my students get free or reduced-price lunch, and all these children love coming to school.

My Project

We are on an upper floor where it is not cool in our classroom. When the temperature is close to 100 degrees, like it was in the past couple years, we already have shorter lessons and more water breaks, but we are also not feeling well. Many of the students are breaking out in fevers as well as falling asleep! We need to keep our classrooms cool. I am asking for these fans for all the second grade classrooms. The last couple years have been so hot that the school district called for early dismissals in June.

These fans will allow for the air direction so that all of the students will benefit from the increased airflow.

This project will benefit my students and other second grade classrooms by making the classroom and environment more comfortable. This will create a better learning environment and less water breaks.

Your love and support will extend the students’ learning beyond the cooler months and into the hottest days of summer. Instead of fanning themselves and counting the hours until dismissal, or counting the half days, they will be able to grow. These second graders will grow as readers, writers, and mathematicians.
