Mr. Bowen from Brighton MA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Active Bodies Make Active Minds

My Students

The scholars that will be joining my classes are children of varying academic levels and many different cultural backgrounds. Our diverse group brings so many unique traits and different experiences into the school year. By the end of the school year, my mission is that all of my students leave with the love of learning and physical literacy! I hope to cultivate the love for learning and a fit lifestyle with the help of engaging equipment and appropriate tools in my classroom. That is where your help will be appreciated greatly.

My Project

Hello everyone,

I have created a DonorsChoose.org project in the hopes to get some equipment for my PE program.

Students will be able to work on their skills of throwing and rolling with the foam bowling pins and fleece balls! They can work on their jumping ability with the Plyo Box. They will sharpen their minds and learn new information with the life-size muscle and bone puzzles.

This year is my second year of teaching PE and I am hopeful that I will be able to engage all of my students in reaching and setting new fitness goals. Any help is appreciated. Thank you, everyone, in advance.
