My students are curious, clever, and eager-to-learn. They also live in an economically disadvantaged neighborhood where shootings happen often. Unfortunately, my students either come to school hungry or without a snack to carry them through until lunch.
These little ones are super curious and have enormous potential, but constantly rumbling stomachs make learning difficult.
They just don't have the same access to nutritious food that students from other areas have. Please help provide healthy snacks so these awesome children can learn distraction free.
My students often come to school without the benefit of a good breakfast. Hunger makes learning difficult and can contribute to behavior problems. These snacks will be a game changer for these children because they will be able to get a snack from our classroom pantry whenever they are hungry, and will therefore be able to more fully focus on their lessons. It’s a long time until lunch (especially if the last time you ate was the night before). Please help give these students some snacks to fill their tummies. By minimizing their distraction from hunger you are helping to maximize their learning!
