My Students

"Super Size" Childhood obesity is alarmingly increasing here in California. Despite that PE is a required subject in our schools, we do not have the funds or the resources to teach PE. Physical education in school is on the average the only time our children are active.

Fitness-test scores in the public schools showed that about 28 of every 100 schoolchildren in California were overweight in 2009.

With the focus on academics, physical education has been put on the back burner and is effecting children from all areas. At our school, we are primarily from an Asian background where the academic rigor is placed so high that they spend most of their day doing academics and then in tutoring after school.

My Project

Having the purchased materials will allow our students to become physically active. Learning gross motor skills like, throwing, catching, kicking, dribbling and playing games require having the necessary balls and equipment for the individual skill. Our students will learn to play lead up games for basketball, soccer, and softball. 90% of our students do not know how to use a jump rope. Using the jump ropes will strengthen leg muscles for running and balance, and arm muscles for throwing, catching and upper-body strength.

Helping our students to become physically active should be become an equal priority as academics.

We need to stop childhood obesity in our schools and help in becoming role models for our students. With the PE equipment requested, we will be able to spend the 110 required minutes focused and learning gross motor skills and games. These skills will help our students to develop healthy bodies and minds which will lead to better test scores.
