Kemper Elementary Adds Water Fountains to Keep Students Hydrated and Learning

A $1,800 grant to Montezuma-Cortez School District RE-1 on April 22, 2022

Cortez’s Kemper Elementary School has a hydration problem: There is no drinking fountain on the east side of the building, which means multiple times a day students must load water bottles in crates, carry them to the other side of the school for filling, and then haul them back. This results in learning distractions and cuts into instruction time. Educators knew there was a simple solution—install two water fountains—and just needed a little help with the funding to run water pipes and install the fountains in the hallway. LOR was happy to help keep students hydrated—and in the classroom.
