My Students

Crestview Elementary is a neighborhood school with a diverse student body. There variety in cultures, home languages and socioeconomic status. Of our 348 students, we have a 55.4% free and reduced lunch rate. The kids are eager to learn and sometimes their parents need resources to help meet their needs like coats, boots, weekend food backpacks, scholarships for after school activities and so on. We work closely with families to do whatever it takes to help them have equal footing and access to a great education!

My Project

The majority of our students walk to school which means warm winter clothing is critical-especially in Minnesota! Each school year, Crestview staff help find winter clothing for more than 40 children. This school year, we have a new space dedicated as a food pantry and clothing closet where parents can find winter clothing and boots for their children.

Some parents do not have the resources to meet this important basic need--winter clothing and boots.

We are requesting high quality winter/ski jackets/parka and winterproof boots for our students. This meets a critical basic need and allows all of our students the ability to get to school safely and comfortably.
