Oh, the Joy of Snack Time

Help me give my students snacks. Cheez-Its, graham crackers, and Goldfish crackers are always a big hit with my little ones.

My Students

My students and their families are my inspiration! I teach in a California public school with students who are eager to learn, explore, and discover new things about the world around them. The majority of my students are English language learners who come from low-income homes and have very limited educational opportunities before entering kindergarten.

My students' families care about their child's education and want all their children to achieve the American dream.

I am humbled that I get the opportunity to be a small part in influencing children to meet their academic and social potential, so they can one day make the world a better place.

My Project

For many kindergarten students, snack time is their favorite time of the day. They get so excited when I announce the day's snack and usually give a big cheer. My students love to sit together chatting and eating a delicious snack. I never let anyone go hungry. So, I'm hoping I can get your help providing snacks for my class.

When children are hungry they cannot learn to their potential.

That's why providing a snack is so critical. Hungry tummies result in distracted students. I want all my students to have this most basic need met while at school. Thank you for considering this project!
