Ms. Strand from Kent WA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Air Pump and PE Balls Needed!

My students need 5 volleyballs and 60 whiffle balls with an air pump in order to learn!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am an elementary PE specialist for Grades 1 - 6 in a public school with a 71% free lunch program. I teach 450 students in a very diverse school.

Our obstacle is lack of funds to purchase or replace very old equipment. They love to play with balls of any kind as most live in apartments without the opportunity to play with balls at home.

Playing with balls involves hand/eye coordination of both sides of the brain and both sides of the body. This improvement carries over to the classroom, so please consider our request for balls, inflating needles, and an air pump. Please help!

Your help will be most appreciated by very low income kids and a teacher who wants to do the best for them.

Ms. Strand
Grades 3-5
Nearly all students from low‑income households
