My Students

I am the first-grade teacher to 19 students in a small, rural, east, Texas town.

A majority of my students come from economically challenged homes.

Some of my students are English Language Learners. Our school is mainstream, where students with special needs are in regular classrooms with the other students.

My students are eager to learn, but many of my students come to school hungry and in need of basic supplies to meet their needs. This makes it hard for them to learn.

My Project

Most of my students do not have a snack to eat each afternoon during snack time. They come to school hungry and are able to get a healthy breakfast and lunch in the cafeteria, but I need help providing healthy snacks for their snack time. Studies show that children cannot learn when they are hungry.

My students need a small refrigerator to store healthy snacks such as fruit, yogurt and vegetables.Students will learn about healthy eating habits while being introduced to healthy snack options.

Please help me provide nutritious snacks and a small refrigerator to store their healthy snacks in.
