“My classmates use their water bottles, I use my water bottle, we all use our water bottles,” fifth-grader Kendall Bingham said.
Bingham is one of 400 students at Hurt Park Elementary who received a water bottle on the first day of school.
Now, you’ll see students taking sips in the classroom or taking water breaks during gym.
It was an idea Principal Sharon Hicks had after talking with the school’s PTA.
“And we talked about hydration and what it does to help the student focus in school as well as decrease agitation,” Hicks said.
She learned more information after reading about the Drink Up initiative to get people to drink more water.
Soon, volunteers donated enough money to buy a filtration system and each student their own water bottle.
“They receive Husky Bucks for the responsibility of bringing their bottle back everyday to school,” Hicks said.
“We’re hoping that it will instill it in them at a young age and it will carry on throughout their lifestyle,” physical education teacher Jessica Keane said.
A Brita Hydration Station is now located in the gym for easy access to fill their water bottles.
“They come through in the morning for breakfast and they go straight to the hydration station, when come go to lunch they come right to the hydration station as well so the students have really caught on to the importance of water and staying hydrated,” Hicks said.
Brita has even reached out to the school to do a study on the students’ performance on standardized testing, ability to stay focused in the classroom and their behavior.
“We have seen less disciplinary issue happening here at Hurt Park and we do contribute some of that to students staying hydrated during the school day,” Hicks said.
These may not be things these students realize but you can tell they like the water.
“It helps you stay energized and hydrated, and a whole lot of stuff,” Bingham said.
So each chance they get, the continue to drink up.
Learn how you can fundraise for a hydration station like Hurt Park Elementary by selling customized reusable water bottles.
[via WDBJ7]Haws Corporation® Strengthens Support for the Growing Drink Up Initiative with School Fundraising Program Successes
With organizations everywhere seeking out options to have good tasting water easily available to the public, Haws partnered with the Partnership for Healthier America’s Drink Up initiative earlier in the year to expand a program that will make Brita® filtered water bottle filling stations accessible and affordable to all schools.
As the inventor of the original Brita® Hydration Station®, a wall-mounted bottle filler providing schools and businesses with convenient access to Brita® filtered water, Haws has experienced an outpouring of interest from schools and businesses nationwide. Together with Drink Up and Nalgene®, Haws has increased awareness of their popular Fundraising Program which encourages students and groups to sell custom branded Nalgene® bottles to raise funds for their own Brita® Hydration Station®.
Since the July Drink Up announcement, numerous schools have taken advantage of the revised campaign to initiate their own Brita® Hydration Station® fundraising project, as well as raise awareness of existing bottle refill stations. Michael B. Dodge, Superintendent of Dundee Community Schools in Michigan says, “Many students and staff stop by to use the machine…(they) love it! I highly recommend the Fundraising Program.”
In addition, Haws has been actively collaborating with universities across the country to engage in their own hydration and sustainability initiatives. Georgia College, a public liberal arts university in Milledgeville, installed multiple Brita® Hydration Station’s® throughout their university housing locations. In conjunction with the College, Haws supported efforts to promote the newly installed stations and the importance of hydration, which included several table events with reusable Nalgene® bottles giveaways. “Students LOVE the bottles!” said Matthew Terry, Assistant Director at University Housing at Georgia College.
In addition, University of Nevada, Las Vegas’ (UNLV) Take Back the Tap group hosted the largest student organized sustainability festival at the end of October where they utilized Haws’ Brita® Hydration Station® mobile kiosk to promote awareness of the existing units installed throughout the campus.
