I work closely with our low income and McKinney Vento students on a daily basis. They come to me in hopes of getting the necessary items they need such as food, clothing, shoes and school supplies. They often need resources and the means to obtain even the basics.
This year I started a food pantry on our campus.
I wanted to be sure that students who had a need could always come to get food to eat. It has been wonderful having this available to them.
There are quite a few students in our body of 3600 that have an ongoing need for food. We rely completely on donations of those items to ensure no one goes hungry here! Often times, what they obtain from our food pantry is what they have to get them through the evenings and weekends.
By ensuring they have food they are likely to be better focused in class and able to obtain better grades.
Student success is very important at our school, and we will do everything we can to make sure students have what they need to be successful, including food.
