Reusable Water Bottles for Thirsty Students!
Organized by: Monnica Burgess
My 5th Grade Students are thirsty for knowledge...and water! Our room is in an older building which heats up during the day, and stays hot until early evening. To make it bearable, I have the lights off, the shades down, and the too-loud-industrial fan running non-stop from early in the morning to well past the end of the school day. My amazing and resilient students are trying to stay with me, but have difficulty concentrating. School funds aren't available to help me buy fans, air conditioners, black out curtains, etc. In the meantime, I need to keep these kids hydrated, and would love to have a set of 24 reusable water bottles to leave on desks for the school year, and refill as needed. (Having a water bottle on each desk also helps minimize trips to the water fountain in the hall...)Unfortunately, the purchase of water bottles is not a burden that all of my families can take on.
I've shopped around and have found some affordable BPA free plastic bottles that will cost about $100 on Amazon. I'd love to get these into the hands of my students ASAP.
Thanks for reading, and considering my request. Please spread the word.
Your kindness is appreciated!
