My Students

"When is lunch? I am hungry! Is it 1:00 pm. yet? I didn't eat breakfast."

My students come to school with a strong desire to learn and achieve their very best.

They are sweet, smart, and hard working! Each of them comes from a low socioeconomic background, resulting in our school having an extremely high poverty rate. Our students have 100% free breakfast, lunch, and dinner, if they stay for the after-school program. We have the highest rate of English Language Learners (ELL) in the state, and have a high amount of Special Education students. Unfortunately, due to lack of funding, many of the basic classroom supplies, manipulative's, and tools that these students need to be successful learners, are not available. Despite these challenges, my students love school, and come every day with a smile.

My Project

A full belly = engaged student! We used to have lunch at noon and it was great! My fifth graders were always engaged and focused. This year our lunch was moved to 1:00 and my students are hungry and lose focus. There are many moans and groans because my students are hungry! My students need Goldfish, pretzels, graham crackers and other snacks to keep their brains fueled all morning. Due to the many hours between breakfast and lunch and my students need to be re-fueled. Also, many of my students come in late, didn't eat breakfast at home and missed our free school breakfast. These snacks will help my 5th graders learn, stay engaged and focus on the task at hand. Studies show it is very important and good for you to eat healthy. These snacks will help that occur.

Your donation will allow my students to remain engaged and focused all morning.

Each day each student will get a quick break to refuel and have a snack. Thank you so much in advance for your generous help and consideration to this project.
