Beach and Soccer Ball Fun

Help me give my students the resources they need to play indoor beachball volleyball and indoor soccer. We have our nets but need the balls to complete our resources.

My Students

The students at our middle school are a very diverse group. We have many economically disadvantaged students and many transient students. Despite this, they come to school daily eager to learn and eager to improve. Physical Education is a vital part of student success. Being active, learning healthy habits, and developing coping skills is essential for classroom success. Students grow socially, emotionally, and physically with a constant emphasis on skills to help them persevere on a daily basis. A strong physical education program helps improve students’ academic success.

I have the pleasure to serve as the Media Specialist for a Positive Behavior Support School in a low performing middle school in a lower-income community.

We are a Title I school of 700 students. Demographically it is made up of 85 percent African American children with 100 percent of our students receiving free breakfast and lunch. I am in a school where the principal is a strong advocate of student-guided learning with flexible choices and promotes athletics and physical activity as well as academics.

My Project

This will give my students the opportunity to play beachball volleyball in the gym and indoor soccer. Beachball volleyball is just plain fun while teaching the onset of volleyball skills and indoor soccer has always been of interest to our students. I would love to be able to help our physical education teachers develop an intramurals program of beachball volleyball and/or indoor soccer to help our students learn skills and release energy. The passion our students have for volleyball and soccer is so exciting to see and giving them this opportunity will only encourage them more to keep chasing this dream. For several of our students, sports are their only positive outlet and they just need more opportunities like this to keep encouraging them to keep a healthier lifestyle.

Project Activity

Donations to this project are now being matched by Mission Tiger, thanks to support from Tony the Tiger® and Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes®. Tony has always believed in the power of sport. So when he learned that middle school sports are disappearing, he knew that something needed to be done. Together, we can help all kids play like tigers.
