My Students

My students are kind, thoughtful and energetic learners. They enter the classroom as curious learners seeking to soak in the world around them. For many of my students, kindergarten is their first experience in a school community. I want to provide them with quality learning opportunities each day so they are excited to come to school. My students depend on me to teach them how to read, write, and develop problem-solving skills that will be the foundation of their education. These students come from a variety of diverse backgrounds. Their families qualify for free lunch and may not have the means to provide literature, manipulatives, and other educational tools at home.

My Project

We have a very long school day and by the end of the day, after working so hard, our scholars are hungry. We provide them with a snack at the end of the day to eat or take home.

All day, students work hard to learn new concepts and practice skills, and their brains need fuel to keep them growing to their full potential.

We have asked families in the past to provide snacks but our supply is dwindling. We know these snacks would be greatly appreciated by our students, families, and school. These snacks would make a difference to our class because we would not have to burden families with the request and students would leave our school with some extra food in their bellies.
