My Students

My students are very special first graders in a high needs area of a borough in New York. Many of my students are English language learners and children with special needs. Each student is unique in his or her own way and deserves to have the best educational experience possible. All of my students receive free lunch and come to school every day eager to learn.

Unfortunately, my classroom does not always have the supplies we need.

Every donation makes a difference in my students' lives. I look forward to creating projects that will make our classroom a joyful learning environment. Thank you!

My Project

Help our scholars to grow their brains by filling their tummies! I teach 24 bright and beautiful children in a high-need area of New York. While most of my students receive free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch, some of our families are financially unable to give their children snacks for the day, and my students are often hungry throughout the day. My students need snacks such as Cheez-its, teddy grahams, graham crackers, and cookies to keep them energized for learning all day long! These snacks would allow our students to have enough energy to keep on learning throughout the day and grow their brains!

If we can make sure they get a snack, they will be able to better focus and really build the fundamental knowledge necessary for them to go onto the next grade and continue to be successful throughout school.

This project is important because our students have a very long day and need some different yummy snacks to help them stay engaged in learning. If we can give them the smallest thing like an afternoon snack, they will be able to keep up their energy and learn even more in the exhausting afternoons.

Thank you so much for your support!
