Palo Blanco is a very small community, and all the residents work in agriculture. The proposed bottle school project will benefit both the elementary school and the middle school. Fifth grade students in Palo Blanco are currently using a wooden shed as a classroom that doesn’t meet the minimum requirements; they will have a brand new classroom which will be a much more suitable environment for learning. The middle school only has two classrooms for three grades, so sometimes they have to use one of the elementary school classrooms. The new bottle classrooms will give the community the number of classrooms they need so that all grades can be taught at the same time.
