Snacks for Students

My students need snacks during our school day, so they are focused on learning rather than hunger.

My Students

My students are creative and full of questions! They love learning new things and learning about the world around them. For most of them, school is one of their favorite places to be.

Our school is a Title I building, full of many students who do not have a wealth of experiences, opportunities, or resources.

My students are the reason I love my job. Helping them grow as individuals and making a difference in their lives is important to me.

My Project

My students eat a daily healthy snack, but many students and their families are unable to provide/purchase this. In years past, I have purchased extra snacks myself, or other parents have generously donated extra snacks for our classroom.

I want my students to be focused on their learning while at school, and that is difficult if they are facing hunger.

While many have more than enough to eat and have no worries in that area, others are in need.

This project would allow all my students to enjoy a snack like cereal bar or cookies, and will alleviate the financial burden on their families or others in our classroom.
