Peer Mentoring and Snacking!

My students need granola bars, juice, and snacks to be nourished throughout the day as well as bins to store the supplies and keep them from the mice!

My Students

With over 500 students who qualify for free and reduced-price school lunch, our middle school has a diverse population of amazingly creative, funny, quirky, incredible kids.

Middle school is a time of self-consciousness for students and finding out more about themselves.

An important part of their journey is to feel like they fit in. With the cold, rainy weather, families often do not have the resources to provide sturdy shoes and rain gear for their children.

Many of our students take the bus for over an hour to get across town to come to school. They and their families are amazingly committed to learning despite challenges of poverty, community violence, and fatigue.

Through these resources, we hope to facilitate their physical, social, and emotional growth and learning while encouraging self-confidence.

My Project

We plan to provide peer academic mentoring to some of our new sixth grade students. Seventh and eighth grade students will support the younger students to be at their best. As they meet they will snack on granola bars, juice, popcorn, and pretzels to focus on learning rather than their growling stomachs.

Students' basic needs are food and nourishment.

Food brings people together! Through this project and peer mentoring, we hope to provide both. Additionally, several Wellness groups will support students in smaller groups to help with their transition to middle school, learn organizational tools, and have fun. We want to make sure students are fed as they meet in support groups. In order to keep the food from the mice, we need the bins to store everything in.
