Help me give my students snacks to eat during their after school activities, including granola bars and juice boxes, because hunger makes it hard to focus.
Our school is a Title I school that is in an at-risk and low-income neighborhood. My students come from diverse backgrounds; the majority are Hispanic or African American. A little less than half of my students are limited English proficient and exceptional education students.
Many come from single-parent households or families that are in transition.
We work very hard to overcome all of these challenges. My students have the exact same eagerness to learn science as their peers in more affluent schools. Unfortunately, the school's resources and technology are very limited.
My classroom is a place where curiosity is cultivated and creativity is fostered. My students are inquisitive learners who love learning about our world. I strive to make all lessons interesting and engaging so students become more curious about the world and crave even more knowledge. The world's greatest inventions and advancements all started with curiosity.
I am the coach for two after school teams: Odyssey of the Mind (a creativity/problem solving team that competes against other schools) and STEM/TSA Club (focuses on increasing students' STEM skills).
Most of my students come from disadvantaged backgrounds, so very few bring a snack and drink to our club meetings.
I am requesting snacks and drinks including cereal bars, crackers, chips, granola bars, and juice boxes, so I can offer every student a snack after school at each of our afternoon meetings. When students are hungry, their focus and work effort are both negatively affected. By offering each student a snack, I can keep them on track so they can continue to do amazing things.
