Our students come from across our city and our entire school qualifies for free lunch and transportation to and from school based on the fact that the majority of our students live below the poverty level.
Despite the issues facing our students, they come to school every day and persevere.
Most every student attends college post-graduation. Our students need any support available, as our school and district often cannot provide the resources necessary for our students to compete with other high schools in our region.
We have an issue with students missing their proper nutrients from fruits and vegetables. The problem is, they say that they get tired of eating the same fruit over and over. I want to expose them to a new way of drinking their fruits. Having a high power blender to mix the fruits and turn them into healthy smoothies will not only create healthier students but also allow students to experience something new with fruits.
Healthier students have fewer absences, and drinking a smoothie daily will promote healthier students.
My students are excited about getting in shape, and just maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I have requested a Vitamix Machine to teach students the value of healthy living and maintaining their health throughout their lives.
