Participating in this fundraising project will provide the students of this small town of Mukwonago an opportunity to establish a global connection in a 21st century manner. This is something many of our students might not otherwise experience. The project will show our students in a tangible way how water is a nonrenewable resource. We hope to demonstrate to students that we all need to take responsibility, including themselves, in the conservation of water.
This project is intended to expose the kids and teachers at Ft. Howard to the global water crisis and the power of giving to those less fortunate. Procter & Gamble, Green Bay has partnered with Ft. Howard in this effort.
We want to teach our students that they can make a difference in the world. This project closely aligns with our curriculum, as we study about microbes and disease. Also, our school has been involved with H2O for Life for a number of years, and this campaign touches on many of the themes we have worked to educate our students about.
We have sponsored a school through H2O for Life for 5 years now. The students love helping others in need.
The Kromrey Middle School Student Council is running a yearlong campaign to raise money for H2O for life.
One of our units in our environmental science class was on the Global Freshwater Crisis. What we learned through this unit was incredibly disturbing and we felt like we needed to do something to help. Currently our class has many different projects going on to help mitigate this crisis. Our group's goal was to focus on getting people reliable access to clean water as soon as possible. We will be doing fundraising events across our school district to help bring clean water to this community.
We just want to help kids in Ethiopia have a better chance at having access to clean water, better health, and an education!
We have the opportunity to provide a transformational service-learning opportunity for our students through H2O for Life. Our students will study issues surrounding the global water crisis, learn about their partner school and country, and will plan and implement activities that raise funds to help bring water and sanitation to our partner school. We want our students to know that by working together, we can make a difference in the world! We hope that all students in our school will benefit from our partnership with H2O for Life. Students will be challenged to think about their own habits concerning water usage, and will develop awareness of the enormity of the issues surrounding water in our world. We hope our school will be committed to make this project for our partner school a reality.
Through the school club "Why Wait?", students are encouraged to change the world in the areas they are passionate about. One of the current projects is an event to recognize World Water Day, and the money raised will be donated to this community through H2O for Life.
Park View has participated in events for H2O for Life since 2014 and through our partnerships, we've been able to help multiple schools in African countries obtain water wells! We hope to keep this tradition alive this year through our annual Walk for Water event each spring. In addition, many students at our school have read A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park. This has brought attention to the water scarcity problem in Africa and is one of the reasons we want to complete this service project.
Katie Spotz spoke to our entire middle school. Our students were moved by what she shared and felt that this would be a great cause to support. Our student council will be spear-heading fundraisers involving our schools and the community to raise money for H2O for Life projects.
