My Students

Our school is home to a very diverse group of students. My students are high-risk and come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Many of my students face challenges before they even arrive at school each day. Many of these challenges include situations many adults have never had to face in their lifetime.

Many of my students may go to bed hungry and may not even have a bed to sleep in each night.

I want my students to be able to learn in a safe and comfortable environment. Our classroom is a mobile unit, but I try and make it feel as warm and welcoming as possible.

My Project

Have you ever been hungry and just couldn’t focus or concentrate? Many of my students go through this on daily basis. This is why I would love to be able to provide snacks for them to enjoy throughout the day. My students come from extremely high poverty homes. The only meals they may receive is what they eat at school. Unfortunately, our school breakfasts are not very filling. My students’ stomachs start grumbling around 9am when we don't eat lunch until 11:30. I would like to provide snacks for those students to enjoy throughout the day to help fill their stomachs to help them focus and learn. I hope you will consider donating to my project.
