Mr. Avila from Los Angeles CA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Active Bodies = Active Minds

Help me give my students the opportunity to use quality playground equipment such as products made by Wilson, Franklin, and Nike. These items such as the footballs and basketballs will last longer in the long run.

My Students

My students love to go outside for physical education especially on free choice Fridays. Whether they want to play kickball, softball, or handball they love to play with and against each other. Given the fact that most of my students live in apartment buildings in the inner city, most if not all of their physical exercise takes place at school. However, we need adequate playground equipment! In addition, having a variety of equipment to use is key to maintaining their interest and health.

My Project

As many of us are aware, it is important to stay physically active. In education, we see the impact physical exercise does on students' minds. They enjoy playing outside and being competitive with each other. By providing a variety of playground equipment, my students can have many opportunities to stay healthy, have fun, and develop new interests.

My students would benefit from using high-quality sports equipment during their physical education period.

In addition, they would have more of a variety of sports and games from which to choose from. As my students have fun and stay healthy they will come to class more alert and motivated!
