Your donations are needed to provide crisp and clean water to the our students.
Bella Vista Elementary is a diverse public school in Oakland Unified School District. 85% of the 475 students qualify for free and reduced lunch by the federal government. Currently Bella Vista students are convinced that only one water fountain on campus has good water based on taste. Students state that the fountains are notorious for their lukewarm temperature and unsavory flavor. A filtered water bottle filling station would provide our students with water that has been filtered and cooled, removing the usual culprits of unpleasant tasting water. A station will purify the water making it taste crisp and clean to consistently deliver chilled water to instantly refresh the palate.
Bella Vista’s vision is to develop the whole child. Our wellness committee emphasizes the importance of drinking water. Providing safe, clean and accessible water gives students greater incentive to hydrate more often, contributing to greater energy and productivity.
Every donation will collectively help us meet our goal to put a water bottle filling station on our campus to promote healthy habits among our TK – 5th grade students.
