Mr. Westhoff's Classroom
The campaign is named A Clean Classroom Environment. The funds will be used to purchase a Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner.
Mr. Westhoff writes:
In my years of teaching, I have noticed there is a clear link between classroom environment and student learning. A clean classroom sends the message that the work we do in class is serious and important. It sends the message that the teacher is attentive and organized. It sends the message that people care. I need help providing my students with an optimal learning environment. A good robotic vacuum will ensure the learning environment is always maintained and clean.
Donations of any amount can help.
The achievements of black men will be recognized by Palms students through song, dance, and spoken word.
