My Students

Our students are suffering. They have lost the safety, care and comfort of school. Missing are the daily hugs, warm meals, and adults that take the time to really listen.

The majority of our students live in extremely difficult situations.

They suffer from food insecurity, incarcerated parents, chaotic living situations, and lack of supervision. Some of our families have reached out for help since the pandemic for food and other necessities.

The students at our school are striving to overcome their challenging circumstances. They want to be in school. They crave the special bonds they have with the adults at the school as well as their friends. If there is any way to alleviate their hardships, even a small amount, I want to make it happen.

My Project

The following information was found on the National Education Association's site.

Missing meals and experiencing hunger impair children’s development and achievement.

Studies published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Pediatrics, and the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry document the negative effects of hunger on children’s academic performance and behavior in school. Hungry children have lower math scores. They are also are more likely to repeat a grade, come to school late, or miss it entirely.

That is why, during the current crisis, it is more important than ever to feed our children.
