My Students

My students are incredible. I have 24 motivated English Language Learners who are eager to learn. My students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds with limited resources available to them. We are a Title I, Performance Improvement School, with one hundred percent of our students on the free lunch program. Many parents work two jobs and are struggling to support their families.

Though their outside environment may not be conducive to learning, my students have an insatiable love of learning.

I know that if we provide them with the right support, resources, and opportunities, they can experience success.

My Project

Remember the feeling when your stomach growled during a test, meeting, or in any quiet setting? It's hard to concentrate when all you can think about is your stomach. We provide breakfast for the children, but if they are late they miss out on breakfast. That's when the tiger in them comes out and the growls begin.

For some, breakfast and lunch at school can be their only meal.

These snacks will keep the growls away until they eat lunch. It will refuel their brains so learning continues. We have lunch before noon, and some children stay at school until 6pm. That's a long gap so the cereal bars, fruit chews, Pop-tarts, cookies, and nuts can be eaten at recess, after school, or taken home. We added the sandwich bags so make sets ready to distribute.

We need to be able to refuel throughout the day to maintain energy and focus on academics.
