“This is my supper.” A student states after taking a banana and breakfast bar. “I don’t get much, if any food at home.” These situations are all too common.
When basic or critical needs such as appropriate clothing for inclement weather, school supplies, meals, health related needs, etc. are not met, students struggle to learn and receive a valuable education. These youth are often at-risk of missing many days of school or dropping out altogether. Meeting these basic needs helps to support a positive learning environment.
The intent of the Critical Needs Fund is to enable school staff to respond quickly and quietly to students they see in need and to students who ask for help. Thank you for your support, you are truly impacting a child!
