My Students

Our school is a small rural alternative school in Central Idaho. The economy has been struggling for years. This has made funding things difficult. In hard times we need to get creative to make it happen for our students.

Our classroom serves the most at risk students in the school district.

They were struggling with being in the traditional high school and came to us to get back on track. Many of the students struggle just to get their basic needs met. They often come to school hungry and tired.

My Project

We all know that teens are typically bottomless pits when it comes to being hungry. We have found that our students learn better if the have fuel for thinking. Giving the students some choices of snack foods for quick energy will help us keep them focused.

‘Recent research shows that many children who do not have enough to eat wind up with diminished capacity to understand and learn.” (Carl Sagan) if we assure our students are fed we will be sure they are ready to learn.

Please help us feed our hungry teens. You can make that difference and impact their futures.
