My Students

My students are from the inner city in Kansas City, KS. Our school is an alternative high school for students who have not been successful in traditional school settings.

One hundred percent of our students receive free lunch and most have very challenging situations at home.

Most of our students have experienced trauma in their lives including being homeless, extremely poverty-stricken, and battling emotional issues. Many have parents who are incarcerated or have been murdered.

Our teachers help with many of the student's​ basic needs, using there own money and resources.

My Project

I am requesting some snack items such as Cheez-its, Capri Suns and granola bars for my very deserving students.The Doritos will be given out as incentive for doing exception work. Snacks throughout the school day provide nourishment for hungry teenagers and incentives to work hard. Our students appreciate these snacks such as Doritos and it encourages them to do their best It is important that these incentives such as Grandma's cookies and Nacho Cheese Chips are seen as a reward for a job well done. Most of us take for granted the snacks we eat during the day, but these students do not have access to these items. The students are very appreciative of the donations and are grateful to know that people care about them. We appreciate any assistance that is provided!
