My amazing students are in grades K-1 and attend school in a large, urban school district. All of my students have individual learning plans, and all have been diagnosed with emotional and behavioral disorders. These disorders may include ADHD, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and/or anxiety disorders. All of my students are significantly below grade level with their academic skills and are working hard to get caught up and be successful!
Students in my classroom come to school so excited to learn and get caught up on their academic and school social skills.
Often, they have had difficulty in their previous classroom settings. This program provides an opportunity for these young students to have a successful and positive school experience to get them on track for an amazing career of learning and growing. Help us make a difference for these students, please!
My students are hard workers and motivated learners! However, they work so hard that they have often burned off their lunch by the time we hit our afternoon work block.
We typically do our most challenging tasks in the afternoon, and it's difficult for small bodies to focus and stay on task if their tummies are grumbling.
It makes a tremendous difference for student achievement when they are able to have a small, nutritious snack in the afternoon. Often, it is the single thing that determines success in their work tasks.
Please consider a donation to this project to ensure that I am able to provide an afternoon snack to a student who truly needs it. Thank you for your consideration!
