My Students

My kindergarten class is comprised of twenty-four, amazing students. They are kind and thoughtful scholars! Most of my students are English language learners. Some come from bilingual households but most are the first ones in their family to learn English. My students receive free breakfast and lunch at school, along with free uniforms. Roughly eighty percent of the families are unemployed. I also have students that are in foster care. Regardless of what is going on at home, my kindergarten students are eager to learn. They want to be successful and like to come to school. For most of them, it is their first time in school and they have not had the benefit of preschool or the experiences that come with going to preschool. I have learned that my students learn best with hands-on learning activities and real-life integrated curriculum that is relatable to my students. Overall, my students are amazing.

My Project

My students are hungry in the afternoon. They receive free breakfast and lunch, but they don't get a snack. It's really hard for them to focus on learning and schoolwork when they're hungry. They need their bellies to be full. They eat lunch at 10:15AM and their school day ends at 2:45PM. That is a long stretch of time to go without any food when so much is being demanded of them academically this year. Food is a basic need and they love crackers, chips, gummies, and goldfish.

It makes them so happy when they get a snack in the afternoon.

Not only will my students receive a snack during our bathroom and water break in the afternoon, but they will also get a snack to take home on occasion. To get this grant funded would truly be a blessing.
