Snow Teacher

Play:
Farm to School — Know Your Foods

Community Involvement
We had teachers volunteer to be in a group that would be willing to wear a special outfit if they were voted in as the Snow Teacher. Students could purchase snowballs to put on the teachers they wanted to be named the Snow Teacher. Proceeds from "snowballs" that were purchased were used to buy food for the school backpack program.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Teachers volunteered to be put on the bulletin board to be chosen as the Snow Teacher. Students decorated the bulletin board and kept track of how many snowballs were sold.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We want to make this a yearly event to raise money for the backpack program at our school. We want to be able to provide backpacks of food for more students so that everyone in the family can get food, not just the students at our school.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

There are more people aware of what the backpack program is. Students are more aware of the fact that many people are hungry and are more willing to get help for themselves or their classmates.
