Children Love Snacks “The Kloset:

Thank you for being a source of support and motivation for our Weddle students. THE KLOSET’s passion for helping our local schools has had a significant impact on our students’ learning and needs. We appreciate your dedication to ensuring that every Keep Readingstudent in our school has a very good and delicious snack when they need it. We feel fortunate to have had THE KLOSET’S support school year-round. The enthusiasm I feel every time I message the personnel from THE KLOSET is contagious, and it has created a positive outgoing environment in the classrooms by providing snacks. The KLOSET’s encouragement and support have boosted Weddle students’ confidence not just in the subject matter but also in the overall academic journey. When the belly is not hungry students’ minds are more open to learn; thank you for believing in our students and for the huge support we have received this school year, 2023-2024 with snacks. We hope that THE KLOSET can continue receiving support from business and community, so school continue receiving the snacks that are much needed. Weddle Elementary School
