My Students

I am blessed with 19 first grade students in my classroom who are eager to learn and explore the world around them. However, my students come from many different backgrounds, which sometimes makes it difficult for students to be exposed to grade-level content at home. Students come from homes that are unable to provide basic supplies, not to mention school supplies. They are made up from a diverse set of backgrounds and include English language learners, special education students, and those receiving free or reduced lunches. Some of my students may even experience being homeless during the school year. Homelessness as an experience that individual people have, rather than a label. It is my goal as their teacher to provide them with basic necessities.

68% of our students are on free or reduced-price meals.

My students are very grateful for your support!

My Project

This proposed project will help provide students in my classroom with necessary breakfast foods such cereal as well as Kleenex, and wipes to fuel their brains and meet their needs! There are several homeless and high poverty families within my classroom that come to school without being prepared. Several of them rely on the school to provide students with a meal, and a safe place to be. This request is for breakfast foods for students who did not receive breakfast in the morning because their family could not provide breakfast, or students didn't arrive on time to eat breakfast at school. Food is a basic need that many people have on a regular basis, but for many of my families,​ it can sometimes be a luxury. This project will address the urgent needs of students by providing breakfast foods and hygiene products such as cereal, Kleenex, and wipes so they can be well-nourished at school, equipped to learn, and set up for success in the classroom.
