Mars Estates Elementary School joined the Student Support Network in May, 2021.

Mars Estates Elementary has students in grades PreK-5 with a current enrollment of 350 students.  Of these, 73% live in severe poverty: 257 qualify for Free Meals, 155 depend on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and 6 are currently identified as homeless.  Many others live in families who make too much to qualify for meal assistance, but not enough to make ends meet.

The lead volunteers of the Mars Estates Elementary Network are Carla Crisp and Monterey Sosa, who work with school staff to fulfill student needs and stock and organize the Room of Support for students.
