My school is a public school serving Chicago's Homan Square community. A mission of urban education is to empower youth to thrive in college and careers by giving them access to quality resources and an innovative teaching staff.
I know my students will be motivated by earning healthy snacks.
The former will help my students focus and keep their minds sharp. High school students have numerous activities to balance including their classwork. This is also an important year for my junior students and they are constantly reminded that the SAT test is approaching quickly.
My students are craving snacks during each school day and I want to reward them for working hard in math. I've previously had a Donorschoose project funded for healthy snacks and it made a world of difference in my classroom. I have a healthy snack incentive in my class when students work hard. It´s a challenge logistically and on my budget for me to keep buying the snacks for the students.
This is an important school year for my students as they have an opportunity to take the SAT test, while beginning to think about applying to colleges.
I want to complete this project so that the students will have more snack options for working hard and challenging themselves in the classroom.
