Healthy Snacks for Better Learning

My students need healthy snacks as this program is being removed from our district this year.

My Students

My students are a very lively, energetic group of kids who are eager to learn and are like sponges that absorb new information and experiences. We are a low-income, high poverty school that works very hard to provide an enriching learning experience for each individual student.

Many of the students in my class have limited knowledge of life outside of their local community.

We begin our school year with a unit about community and research and learn about other types of communities to provide them with a wider range of knowledge of how others live in the city, town and rural communities all over the world.

I love to see my students come to school each day eager and ready to learn. I want to be able to provide my students with the most enriching educational experience that I am capable of giving them.

My Project

The healthy snacks that my students need are being requested because that program is being removed from our school this year. I do not want to ask students to bring their own snack because some students cannot afford to take snacks to school and I do not want to have students bringing unhealthy snacks like candies and cookies. It is a long stretch of time for students to go from 8:30 to 12:05 when they go to lunch. Students do not focus on their work when they are hungry.

As their teacher providing snacks for my students will be a big expense so that is why I have asked for these items.
