Help Us Stay Full And Focused!

My students need food. There is so much stigma attached to school lunches that many of my students would rather go hungry than eat the school lunch. These snacks will help them stay full and focused.

My Students

The students from my school live in one of the poorest Congressional Districts in the country. Many of our students are English language learners who live day-to-day and view coming to this public school as a way to escape their home lives. We try our best to provide students with access to after school programs and technology, but with major budget cuts, we can no longer afford to fund student-centered projects. It has become increasingly difficult to offer services to our English Language Learners as well as our large population of students with Special Needs.

My Project

For whatever reason, so many of my students would rather be hungry than eat the school provided breakfasts and lunches. I know it seems weird to be like this but it is not a mindset that I am ever going to be able to change so I have to adapt.

If there is one thing that I have learned as a high school teacher is that students cannot learn when they are hungry.

The individual breakfast bars, oatmeal, nuts and juices will hopefully keep my students energized so that they can stay focused on their assignments. The granola bars are always a big hit, too!
