My Students

My students are a wonderful and exciting group of four and five-year-old boys and girls, in an ICT (integrated collaborative teaching) classroom. This means that 40% of my students are in special education, and the rest are in general education.

We are a Title I school and work hard to ensure that everyone learns and succeeds.

I want them to have everything they need and deserve to have to make their school year exciting and fun, as well as productive and successful throughout the entire year.

My Project

My students come to school ready to learn. They are bright, energetic, sweet children who are a pleasure to teach. Unfortunately, when their tummies are growling with hunger, they cannot focus and hear what it is I have to teach them. They have the early lunch and it is a long day. Their bellies grumble in the afternoons. For this reason, we have snack time. Many parents cannot afford to send their child with snacks every day. With your help my little ones will be able to fill their tummies so they can continue to learn the rest of the day.

Can you focus with a grumbling, growling belly?

Well, my students can't either. Animal crackers, pretzels, cookies, Rice Krispie Treats, Cheez-its, Goldfish and more are needed to fill their bellies. No child should have to sit and focus on learning when their bellies are hurting them from hunger. These snacks will keep that from happening.
