Goal

The students at Calvin Hunsinger often experience poverty, turbulent home lives, single parent families, incarcerated family members, academic and behavioral struggles, mental health issues and a variety of other stressors. As a result, many of our students often miss school. The purpose of this grant is to acknowledge and provide a positive incentive for students to attend school.  

 

What will be done with my students

Attendance Recognition Events will be held to celebrate students who attend school regularly and to acknowledge students whose attendance is improving. An event might be a Pizza Party, an Ice Cream Social, Fresh Fruit Fiesta or Snacks such as veggies and hummus. Students will be awarded a certificate as well, to document their achievement. They could take the award home and share it with their families. 

 

Benefits to my students

Our hope is that when regularly attending school is acknowledged and reinforced as a positive goal for students, they will strive to attend school more. Ultimately this will lead to more time spend in the classroom engaged in learning.  

 

Describe the Students

Many of our students are economically disadvantaged, demonstrate low academic performance, experience behavioral difficulties and mental health issues and a significant number live in single parent families. Our school receives Universal Free Lunch for students and is a Title I School. All of my students receive Exceptional Education Services (ESE) including services for students with Emotional/Behavioral Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Specific Learning Disabilities, Intellectual Disabilities, Speech and Language Impairments and Occupational Therapy.  

 

Budget Narrative

What would be served at the Attendance Recognition Events would vary, but would always include some healthy options such as fruit or veggies and hummus.
