My Students

My 4th-grade students are energetic and hard working. They love to learn and interact with their environment, using a hands-on approach to learning. This group of students comes from a wide variety of backgrounds ethnically, culturally and financially. The majority of our students are bilingual.

Over 80% of the students in our school receive free and reduced-price lunch and are from low economic backgrounds.

I strive to give them opportunities they might not otherwise experience.

Fourth grade can be a real turning point for learning and developing for many children. They are still "little kids" but they are growing up fast, so it is important to keep them excited and interested in learning.

My Project

I was explaining to my mother how hungry my students are during the day and how much it costs me to buy snacks. It never occurred to me to try and get snacks through this amazing site and it's amazing donors!

Many of my students may come to school hungry, and although they may get free breakfast or lunch, their growing bodies and learning minds need more!

These snacks will help students focus more on their classroom learning and less on being hungry. They will also help students who are not able to bring snacks from home feel more comfortable.
