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

Some of my students are in between homes or are currently homeless so when they get to school they are not clean and many are hungry. They have so much to worry about before school even starts. Items like chips, water and fruit snacks can be taken before, during and after school for the kids that might not have breakfast or lunch. So many kids come to school hungry and can not focus on their learning. They then become discipline issues. If we have snacks like chips and crackers available they can grab a snack and then get right into their classes and work.
