My Students

My students attend a Title I School, and almost 70% receive free or reduced-price lunch and breakfast. They attend a magnet school which requires most students to maintain a B average throughout the year. The students are part of Pre-Med, Engineering, Environmental Science, or Computer Technology programs.

Our students come from the diverse backgrounds of 30 different countries.

This makes our school pretty special in so many ways. The students all work so hard and are very deserving of this project.

My Project

My students are the sweetest inner-city kids. They come to school and before they even walk through the door many of them are dealing with huge adult issues like homelessness and hunger. Unfortunately, these are issues no child should have to deal with. My hope is that with simple items like deodorant, toothpaste, socks, gloves, body wash, and snacks can help make a child’s day better. A simple snack like pretzels or crackers can take away their hunger and then allow them to focus on school. Giving students access to snacks and treats helps them know that someone cares. That they are validated and we want them to come to school and be successful.
