My Students

My students come to P.E. class very active and motivated to get moving! Our school serves over 600 PreK to 5th grade students that get P.E. everyday for 30 minutes. We just got a gym for our school that houses two P.E. teachers with upwards of 100 students at times. We feel very lucky to have this space to get active and learn forms of sports, skills and physical fitness activities. Our school understands that P.E. gives children an opportunity to expand their minds beyond the school setting.

My Project

My students are excited and eager to learn new skills. With the requested equipment we will get active with a variety of new activities which will then keep students motivated for P.E. class. Also, we will get to utilize our new gym to its full potential.

I'm requesting adjustable height nets to help me introduce students to new skills and sports such as tennis, volleyball and badminton.

I am also asking for volleyballs, tennis rackets and balls, and badminton sets to go along with the nets. Students will also develop cooperation and team skills while staying active with new equipment.
