My Students

My students come from a variety of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. We are a third grade class at a public school located in a small town in northern Minnesota. We have a large percent of free and reduced price lunches. The high level of poverty in our community results in many students facing hardships outside of school.

Regardless of background, my students have a desire to learn!

My students are all different and they deserve to learn in a way that works for them. It would be great to provide them with the best opportunity to learn while in the classroom.

My Project

Our school has a large population of poverty and many families facing great hardships. Therefore, we do not have a lot of snacks in the classroom. There are many students who do not have extra food at home. My goal is to be able to have snacks available to give each student a daily snack. If they want to eat it right away they can or they can bring it home to share or eat later. Some snacks will be given to students who could benefit from the extra food over long weekends . Some may be given to students who come late and miss breakfast and have not eaten yet.

I want my students to be able to focus on learning and not be hungry.

These snacks will give students that extra boost and help them be able to put their energy into their work without growling bellies.
