My Students

In our community the students go through many daily struggles, some help their families pay for bills, some take care of their younger siblings, some may not know where their next meal may come from, and much more. Many of our students are homeless and/or live in hotels. Some even live without electricity daily. Even with these daily struggles, they still attend school and try their best each day on campus.

At our Title I school in central Florida, all of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Our students that participate after school in tutoring, clubs, or sports also receive dinner for free. We, as a school, try and support our community as much as we can. We know through the struggles, the students will still succeed.

Despite their hardships, the students still continue to work hard. They still attend school with these hardships to better their futures so they too can be successful.

My Project

By having a popcorn machine at our school, we can constantly give affordable incentives and rewards to our students. Coming from a title one school with no more in the budget for student activities, this machine will help us do the trick!

Our students deserve to have parties filled with popcorn just like any other school but without a PTA or a budget for this, it is hard for us to make this readily available for our kids.

Please help us by donating to our incentive party snacks for all of our deserving kiddos. I know I will appreciate it and they will too!!!
