My students are at risk of failing to meet the state's academic achievement standards. We are grant-funded based on the number of economically disadvantaged students.
My students have been affected by three hurricanes, a snowstorm, and a historic flood in a matter of one year.
The National Weather Channel deemed our city as the most weather battered city in the US. They also come to me without some of their basic needs met as all of my children are 200% below the federal poverty line. It is my job to fill in the developmental gaps and ensure kindergarten readiness. I serve at a Title I school.
I serve 20 eager and hardworking children, all of whom receive free lunch. I have students with individual education plans and several kids with speech concerns.
These snacks will make sure the students can think effectively. They will learn to know that their stomachs are full and be able to concentrate instead of thinking when will be the next meal.
Snacks help students focus on what they need to in the classroom.
We often send home snacks so that students have food when they get home!
Also, during testing we need students to put their best foot forward. Full stomachs enable kids to perform better and allow them to focus. Students cannot focus when their needs aren't met.
