The Sniffles Can't Stop us from Learning!

Help me give my students supplies to keep them healthy during this cold and flu season. I'm looking for hand sanitizer and Kleenex for them to use while in class.

My Students

My students are high achievers who take their learning seriously. They work hard and having fun while studying.

I feel lucky every day to walk into my room and teach these students.

This year I am been continually impressed by their creativity and work ethic. My students go above and beyond all project requirements and spend countless hours in my room for tutoring and help understanding sometimes complex concepts.

Their efforts inspire me and remind me daily why I became a teacher.

My Project

I'm looking for Kleenex and hand sanitizer to keep my students healthy and in my classroom. My district doesn't pay for these simple supplies and as a result students often leave my room to go get toilet paper to blow their noses and wash their hands.

Having Kleenex and hand sanitizer in my classroom will keep my students in the room, allowing them to focus on learning even when they have the sniffles.

These supplies are small and basic, yet so important to my students. Basic comforts like Kleenex allow my students to feel comfortable and to learn at the same time.
