My Students

Our school is a dual-language community school that serves ECE through sixth-grade students. We provide a rigorous, bilingual, academic program that prepares all of our students for global citizenship in the 21st century. In the school, 97% of our student population participates in the free or reduced-price lunch program. The student body is 91% Latino/Hispanic, 4% Black, 3% White, and 2% Asian. My students love to learn and have the desire to learn at the beginning of their day. My students may struggle, but love life and learning!

My Project

We just finished up Thanksgiving break, and my snack box is running low! That is why this project is so important. I have students who arrive at school late and will not receive breakfast. I am ready to help them learn when they arrive, but I have to be prepared for how they arrive at school.

If they don't eat, then they can't focus on the learning because they are so caught up in how their stomach feels.

This is why I have requested a variety of healthy snacks that are mostly protein. Students need protein to supplement school breakfast and lunches. I envision using the food from this project to feed my students when they are hungry.
