My Students

My amazing fourth graders come to school each day eager to learn. Their love of learning is absolutely contagious and exciting!

Our school motto is "Caring for Children Today, Creating Leaders for Tomorrow." I consider it such an honor to be able to work alongside the best student scholars and educators in the country to help care for our students today while creating leaders for tomorrow!

Our school is committed to providing its students with all of the resources that are needed to engage them in rigorous, dynamic and inspirational instructional activities. There may be times when we do not have what we need, but we have taken on the "We can't yet..." not a "We can't..." attitude. All of the resources we want to provide to our students are available to us through the magic of DonorsChoose.org thanks to donors!

My Project

100% of my students receive free or reduced lunch at school, which means some of them are not eating breakfast and most come to school without a snack to keep them focused throughout the day. Healthy snacks keep their brains working hard on learning. Having snacks available for my students eliminates a major concern for them, freeing up their minds to concentrate on academics rather than hunger. I even added some chocolate for those day we need a special treat!

My students work hard on a daily basis and get hungry before lunchtime.

Being half way through the school year, I have purchased so many snacks on my own that I am in need of assistance. I would appreciate any help. This project will reach all the students in my classroom. Thanks for the support!
