My Students

We were a victim of Hurricane Florence. Most of my students lost their homes and had to be placed in shelters. The area I work in is low socioeconomically, and most students receive free or reduced price lunch.

My students are very eager to learn, and before the flood were on the road to a great school year.

It is my goal to provide them with a positive atmosphere so that they will be able to return to and can learn in an unrestricted environment.

My Project

My student were just involved in Hurricane Florence and the last thing they should have to worry about is a snack. The snacks will provide a much needed brain break for my students. Students need to take time to stop and enjoy a snack at the end of the day.

Parents should not have to worry about providing snacks as they seek shelter for their family.

Children will be given the opportunity to stop, snack, and talk about whatever is on their heart. Providing snacks will take the pressures off of parents and teachers who were impacted by the storm.
