Snacks Are Back

My students need snacks for snack time. My students have been so grateful for their snacks, and I can't wait to give them nutritional snacks to fill the financial void that some families face.

My Students

My third graders are creative, inspiring, innovative, and active. I am so grateful to spend my day learning alongside them. These students are involved in so many activities inside and outside of school, both in the community and outside. Our school itself, is a low income school in a rural community.

My students are eager to try new things and use their passions for good, and that's why I believe it's my job to give them the education they deserve to receive.

Our class is made up of so many dreamers and inventors, and I can't wait to see where the world takes them.

My Project

Since joining donorschoose.org, I have been blessed with the ability to bless children with snacks for snack time. I have seen firsthand the gratefulness that students have expressed in getting snacks. Many students line up daily to receive snacks donated. As a result, we are running low on supply. Third graders especially, are active and growing. This snacktime is very necessary in their development and growth.

With the addition of nutritious snacks, I can continue to bless my students, and fill the financial void some families face in our low income school.

I appreciate all of the help from many generous individuals who have already supported our need for nutritious snacks and a healthy classroom!
