Quote of the day

“Due to budget cuts this year, we only receive janitorial services two days a week. We need a vacuum to make our classroom clean and ready for learning… Daily vacuuming is especially vital because we eat breakfast and lunch in the classroom…The other day I spied a cockroach, which are rare in Alaska. I don’t want to feed them!”

Ms. Becker, a teacher at Airport Heights Elementary School, trying to get the funds for a vacuum from DonorsChoose.org, an online charity that raises money for classroom projects.
