My Students

Our elementary school is in a low economic area where the PE program was just reinstated 2 years ago. Our county is year after year considered one of the most unhealthy counties in the state of North Carolina. Our students here at TCES come from a wide range of economically diverse backgrounds, but close to 100 percent of our school's children qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program. Our area was severely affected by Hurricane Florence. Flooding and water damage impacted several of our classrooms including my gym which forced half of my gym floor to be unusable. Many of my students lost their homes or had to be relocated due to the storm.

Our students are happy, affectionate children who look forward to coming to Physical Education class every day.

Since our countywide PE program is considerably new, our PE teachers are lacking equipment and materials that can help our children be more physically fit and better aware of healthy life choices. Our after school sports programs help keep students off the streets while providing positive experiences in our athletics program.

My Project

Our school holds an awards program for students kindergarten through fifth-grade after every semester. During this time, I give out physical education awards to my top students in every class. The problem is that our rewards are always in black-and-white because color printers are hard to come by at my school. The requested new color printer in this project will give me a chance to award my physical education students with bright colored awards that the students will most definitely cherish and be proud of. I plan to laminate these color awards and give them out during our awards presentation every semester. Thank you for all of the help that you can give!
