Nutrition & Hunger

The Snyder ISD Counseling Team & School Nurses work hard to identify children who may be struggling with hunger or have nutritional needs. According to We are Teachers There are millions of kids across the US dealing with food insecurity . Because their basic nutritional needs aren’t being met, these students are more likely to have behavior problems or become high school dropouts. Collaborating with the school and local assistance agencies, our staff works to connect families with the resources they need.

Mental Health & Wellness

School counselors support children’s journey of academic, emotional, and social success. School counselors collaborate with faculty, staff, students, parents, and the community on a comprehensive guidance and counseling program.  They meet with students throughout the year and are also available to meet with students when needed.  Please feel free to reach out to your students' school counselor any time by calling your child's' campus.
