My Students

Have you ever heard of a quiet, preschool classroom? My class is the opposite of quiet. I have students who come to school and are eager to learn. My students live in a low-income area in the city. Our students are always ready to learn and help others. Many of our students depend on our school lunches and snacks for daily meals. We love to host fundraisers and collect donations for our families. We know they try to do their best and with our help, we can help their children succeed.

My Project

I am asking for is snacks for the classroom. Sometimes the children come to school hungry and I would like to keep snacks for them in the classroom. There are also days children ask if they can take a snack home because they know there might not be food on the table. I would like to keep a basket of snacks for the children to help themselves while they are at school or even to take a snack home. Children should not go home hungry or worry if they will eat that evening. I want them to know school is a safe place and that we are here to help them. Please help me fill my food basket in my classroom. Thank you for your help in advance!!
