My Students

"Dream big, ask questions, and never give up!" is our motto in our after-school program! In order to do keep pushing for an extra hour of learning, our kids will need a healthy protein-filled snack to get them through!

If you struggled to break apart complex words or form strategies for composing numbers, wouldn't you want a yummy, healthy snack to launch your learning?

With 50+ students in second, third and fourth grade, our main goals are to target specific skills and foster a growth mindset in our students. When we view mistakes as learning opportunities and errors the path to true understanding, we work collaboratively to create high expectations and achievement for all students. In order to build the stamina to keep pressing on, our kids deserve a protein-filled, brain-building snack!

My Project

Kids take a 15 minute brain break recess before beginning targeted learning. Easy snacks are often filled with sugar or carbs. We've selected snacks that are nutritious and filled with protein but are also easy to distribute on the go. With these snacks, the kids will have all the tools they need to concentrate and work hard!

With over 60% free and reduced lunch, snacks our essential to our students.

Some of them struggle to get adequate nutrition at home. Giving them a boost before intensive instruction is essential!
