My Students

This year I am teaching 29 fourth graders. I teach in a Title I school, located in a very high-poverty and high-crime area of Pennsylvania.

All of my students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students come from homes where English is not spoken. I have eight special education students and five ESL (English as a Second Language) students in my classroom. Many of my students in my classroom have an in-class social worker. I would appreciate as much support as I can get for my little ones. Thank you in advance.

My Project

I would love to get my students new book bags. Many of their current book bags are falling apart.

In addition to getting my students book bags, I would also like to get them snacks.

I would like to give my students snacks to take home at the end of the day so that they do not have to worry about going hungry. If they do not have to worry about being hungry, they will be able to concentrate on their studies more.

Some of the snacks that I want to give my fourth graders include chocolate, pop chips, moon cheese, dried fruit and breakfast bars.
