Help me give my students snacks and drinks so they won't go hungry!
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things exciting and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are creative, kind-hearted, and very eager to learn.
They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
Unfortunately, several students in this community are coming to school hungry. Many parents come home late and my students are left to fend for themselves for dinner and are going without breakfast when they come to school late. Hunger is causing students to take their focus of of academics because they are so focused on their next meal. Many sneak candy during class instead of getting a nutritious snack to tide them over until lunch or dinner.
Students should not have to worry about their next meal or where it will come.
I need your help so I can provide my students with healthy snacks in the morning and throughout the day. The cups, plates, and bowls will be used to serve the juice and snacks. My goal is to make sure my students never go hungry!
