My Students

My students are creative and energetic. All students come from low-income homes and 70% of families are Spanish speaking only.

Feeling trapped!

Hungry! Scared! Worried! Missing their friends and teachers that care about them. This is how my students feel everyday during this closure.

Many of my students don't have internet, iPads, or devices to learn online. Some families do not have a car, so picking up packets and food items is a challenge. My students need materials and most importantly they need essential items; such as food. Despite the hardships they are facing with school being closed, they are want to learn.

My Project

Can you focus? Are you angry or irritated? These are just some ways you might feel when you are HUNGRY. When you are Hungry, can you focus on your work?

Many of my students are struggling during this school closure due to a lack of food.

They are HUNGRY! Food comes first, then the learning. This project is designed to provide some food items for my students and their families. Some of these families do not have cars, which makes it very difficult to receive these items. In addition, some have lost their jobs. Please consider donating to help my student!
