Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are dedicated scholars. They work hard at everything in their lives. One of biggest challenges my students face is academic equity. They do not have basic supplies, but they need them. Food in their bellies and bags on their backs will help level the playing field for my students.
My students are ethnically diverse.
I have many native Spanish speaking students, Pacific Islanders, and native English speaking students. All of my students come from low income households. My school is on the rough side of town, but my students have hearts of gold.
The backpacks, hand sanitizers, and snacks like trail mix & fruit snacks will help my students be more successful and healthy. The snacks will be great energy boosters on slow days. The backpacks will help students organize their lives better, so they can bring homework between school and home. My classroom is in a trailer without running water, so the hand sanitizer will help my students stay healthy.
These items will improve my students quality of life here at school.
They will feel more clean because of the sanitizer. The backpacks will make it so students can shuttle things between school and home. The snacks will provide sustenance for students when they are hungry.
