Wipe Away the Germs!

Help me give my students a clean and germ free classroom especially during the sick season. The more days students are at school well the more successful they can be.

My Students

My 6th and 7th grade math students come from very diverse backgrounds. Our school is a Title 1 school district where over 80% of the students receive free or reduced lunches. My students work hard daily toward a bright future. The classes consists of inclusion and middle of the row students. They helped our school and our district receive a B rating in 2017-2018. They are working very hard in hopes for our school and our district to receive an A rating this school year.

My Project

Teaching middle school is not easy. It is very important for our students to be here daily along with our teachers. This year we have offered many incentives to help encourage student attendance throughout the school year. In order to prevent excessive absences, we need to reduce illness. Classroom cleaning supplies will reduce illness and increase students and teacher attendance which will increase learning. All of these items are things that my students need to kill germs such as tissue and hand sanitize, and the other items are me to make sure my classroom stays germ free so my students nor myself get sick.
