My Students

"No matter what great things you accomplish, somebody helps you." -Wilma Rudolph.

My students have the cards stacked against them, they are minorities and from the South Bronx.

Some also get the labels of English Language Learners or Special Needs. Almost all of them get free or reduced price lunch. I like to label them differently: bright, artistic, resilient, funny, kind, responsible, and the list goes on. They are poised to accomplish greatness. Can you be the 'somebody' that helps?

My Project

Help our scholars to grow their brains by filling their tummies!

Some of my students get onto the bus as early as 6 am.

It is a very long day, and they get really hungry. I teach 26 bright and beautiful children in a high-need area of New York. While most of my students receive free or reduced price breakfast and lunch, some of our families are financially unable to give their children snacks for the day, and my students are often hungry throughout the day.

My students need snacks such as bars, pretzels, and cookies to keep them energized for learning all day long! These snacks would allow our students to have enough energy to keep on learning throughout the day and grow their brains! If we can make sure they get a snack, they will be able to better focus and really build the fundamental knowledge necessary for them to go onto the next grade and continue to be successful throughout school. I am also asking for fruit snacks and goldfish crackers.

This project is important because our students have a very long day and need some different yummy snacks to help them stay engaged in learning.

If we can give them the smallest thing like an afternoon snack, they will be able to keep up their energy and learn even more in the exhausting afternoons.
