Having the water bottle filling stations would have a huge impact on our students. We have over 600 students Grades Tk-8, and the school is close to 50 years old, with drinking fountains that do not accommodate modern water bottles. We regularly observe students who try to fill their water bottle up, to only get it a quarter full and students have to come back to fill it up constantly. We would love to support our students’ habits of drinking filtered water throughout the school day, which supports their health and learning, Also, using refillable water bottles, rather than increasing plastic waste, aligns to our values of environment stewardship.
