My Students

My students walk in ready to deliver and take on the tasks of the class. When they are all here, I can confidently say, "all of my favorite students are here today," as they boast about who, if any, is the actual favorite.

I teach at a K-12 school where students readily accept one another as they are.

Their camaraderie impresses me daily and allows us to dive deep into authentic learning experiences. My students' exposures to opportunities are limited in our distant rural setting. As a result, the students love novel, new information, and are filled with curiosity.

My Project

Our Industrial Art lab has flourished thanks to interested donors like you. Your support for our continued growth would be greatly appreciated.

Allergenic students and asthmatic students are sensitive to the current levels of dust in our Industrial Arts lab.

One of the positive consequences of donors like you has been an increase in lab traffic and use of woodworking tools. This increase has surfaced an issue that must be addressed promptly. Can you help us address the issue of airborne wood dust so we can maintain and increase our woodworking activity?

We must address the issue before hazardous levels are reached. Donate now to help our Industrial Arts lab maintain a healthy and clean learning environment and keep airborne wood particles from entering our respiratory system.

We've requested a portable dust collector with attachments for efficient hook up to our commonly used tools. We've also requested sweeping compound for the tough to help keep dust at floor level during sweeping.
