My Students

The students in my alternative school have all experienced different types of trauma in the short time they’ve been on this earth. My school serves students in grades K-12 who have been unsuccessful academically and behaviorally in the general schools. All students have been diagnosed with emotional and behavioral disorders, in addition to dealing with the death of a parent, incarcerated parent(s), moving around in foster care, drugs in the home, and/or basic needs left unmet. In addition, all students receive free breakfast and lunch at school. Students are provided with a bag of food to take home over the weekend. While this helps, students could would still benefit from additional snacks during the school day and snacks to take home at the end of the day.

My Project

Students in my school ALL receive free breakfast and lunch, as well as a small bag of food to take home for the weekend. Still, I would like to provide my students with snacks and drinks right before they leave me at the end of the school day. The bottles of water, drinks, chips, pretzels, and cookies are all snacks that do not require students to use an oven or to seek assistance from an adult in order to prepare the food. These basic edibles would allow me to send extra treats home with my kids who truly may not eat again until they return to school. No child deserves to go hungry! With your help, we can provide students with a few of the “bare necessities”!
