My Students

The students at my school are dynamic and diverse and they come to school each day eager to learn. Our Elementary School building serves over 1,100 students in grades K-5. Many of our students come from low-income households. Their families are doing the best they can to provide for their children’s needs, however, some struggle more than others and are unable to provide for every need.

During Buffalo winters, we often see students arriving and leaving wearing only their uniforms shirts, and sometimes a light fleece.

While we do enjoy moderate temperatures in the Fall, we have been known to have snow as early as October. Cold temperatures often swoop in during the day, and it is a safety concern to send children outside at the end of the day without proper clothing, including a warm winter coat.

With many of our students coming from low-income households, sometimes expensive gear can be difficult to afford.

My Project

Winter is nearing and the cold temperatures will soon arrive. Throughout the winter temperatures range from 0 to 36 degrees. Wind chill temperatures make it feel even colder, and many days have a “feels-like” of less than zero. In the 2018-2019 school year, the wind chill dipped to as low as -30.

We want to make sure every student at CSAT is able to stay warm this winter and help our families who may be unable to afford a proper cold-weather coat.

Donations will be used to purchase a variety of new girls and boys coats in a variety of sizes. They will be kept on hand so our staff can provide students a coat (as needed) to keep them warm for the winter.
