Snowline Joint Unified School District

We are a STEAM school. We have a STEAM Lab that is located next to our Garden w/Greenhouse. The Garden space has not been exploited in years, and we would love to continue our first and COVID-19 second year of partnership with FoodCorps and building what we have into something the entire community can embrace. Our scholars have been neglected for far too long. Other elementary schools in the district tend to out perform us academically, have modern buildings, and are more “appealing” from the outside looking in. We want our scholars and their families to be proud of our school and what it has to offer our kids. Additionally, many our poverty stricken families are not educated in healthy eating and/or lifestyles. We want to provide our scholars with the most probable (best opportunities) opportunity to grow up healthy. We feel that partnering with FoodCorps heightens the probability of our scholars living a healthy lifestyle. Many of our students and families face food insecurity and most of our students have yet to be invited to make healthy fresh food choices. Processed foods for meals and snacks abound! We’d like to continue getting our kids excited about “Eating the rainbow” and teaching them about the bounty of healthy choices a garden can supply them and their family with!

Preferred Qualifications

  • Enjoys sunshine, kids and a more quiet after hours setting
  • Speaking Spanish would be a plus, but not necessary
  • A love of kids and health is huge
  • Enthusiasm wins over experience every time!
