My Students

Our School family of students is 90% on free and reduced-price lunches and almost 50% come from homes where English is not the native language. The neighborhood school is in a low-socioeconomic area. These students often do not have a lot of experiences to draw on which affects not only their academic learning but also their knowledge of nutrition, fitness, activities, and sports. This is true not only for the students but for their families. Obesity and lack of activity are an area that is affecting our whole country. Many of our students learn the majority of their physical skills through our PE program which is 3 times a week for 30 minutes for our students. In a culture where video games are an after school outlet for most of our students, it really limits their self-motivation to get outside and get active.

My Project

The essential healthy snacks (granola bars) will help the children obtain the vitamins and minerals they need in order to be successful in school. The students do not have access to enough food at home. 90% of the kids are on free or reduced-price lunch status. There are homeless children at the school. It is hard for the students to concentrate when their stomachs are empty. They need the nutrients in order for them to focus on academics.

Essential healthy snacks (granola bars) will help the kids come to school prepared to learn and gain knowledge.

It is a big challenge for educators to help their children learn when their students say that they are hungry. If the students are lacking food, they will not be willing or able to learn. They need the snacks.
