My Project

Transitioning back to "normal" school post-COVID has left very little time for my students to just be kids. I am requesting fun outdoor sports balls to help students celebrate the end of 8th-grade.

We have relaxed most of our COVID protocols and can finally take some time outside to break up the monotony of the school day; by providing my students with outdoor toys and games, I can get my students up and moving to celebrate their success!

I am asking for soccer balls, footballs, frisbees, kickballs, and volleyball for my students to use at our end-of-year celebration.

Thank you for your support of my students! I am excited to see them be able to play outside with their classmates and just be kids.
