Filling Lunchboxes

My students need snacks to help fill their bellies and keep them focused.

My Students

We are a STEM-based charter school with 74% free or reduced-price lunches. Recently, we were also impacted by Hurricane Irma which caused roof damage to many of our classrooms as well as my students' homes. Many of my students' families were out of work for more than two weeks which has also put a big strain on them financially.

I have an amazing group of third graders who are inquisitive and driven to learn everything they can to achieve their goals and dreams.

Our students come from a diverse socioeconomic background all with different perspectives and experiences. When they enter the classroom each morning, they are leaders ready to create solutions to the challenges their peers face.

They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners. They are mini inspirations to themselves and others around them, even if they don't know it yet. They are budding ambassadors, world travelers, scientists, entrepreneurs, and teachers. They are our future!

My Project

Children are growing and often hungry! When kids are hungry they have a hard time focusing and learning in class. I am requesting snacks for my students to give them extra food daily so they can worry about school work instead of their belly's rumbling. By providing my students with food they are able to focus and concentrate on their school work and in the end achieve more each day.

My third graders will also be taking state assessments for the first time this school year.

Research has shown that peppermints help with focus and concentration as well. Giving mints to my students while they are working and/or testing will only help them to stay focused so they can prove how amazing they really are through their work.
