Mr. Halvorson from Beaverton OR is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Beaver Acres Run Club

My students need access to water, running shoes and pedometers to measure distance. We would like to provide students in need with a new pair of shoes to run in during our club meetings.

My Students

Our school has students that come from a variety of diverse backgrounds. These students are creative, energetic, curious and excited to learn. I am trying to implement a culture of health and wellness at our school that includes an active lifestyle.

My energetic students don't always have access to extracurricular opportunities they need to broaden their experiences.

Due to financial constraints and difficult backgrounds, our students do not always have the opportunities they need to be active outside of school.

My Project

Today’s schools face enormous pressure to focus on standardized testing. Research shows that students need a balance of physical activity to support their growth academically. Our school focuses on the whole child.

We encourage our students to lead a healthy lifestyle and to get outdoors to enjoy physical activity.

This belief was the catapult for our Running Club. This month we launched a Running Club for students at all age levels. Students were invited to participate two days after school. During this time, we will run laps and discuss proper running techniques. The hope is that students can excel and feel confident about themselves.

In order for our club to be successful, we need a few basic materials. Our students need access to cold water, running shoes, and pedometers to measure distance. Many of our students have only one pair of shoes and they are not ideal for running. Often times resources are tight for our families and if our building can provide support for these students we will attract more kids. We believe that these shoes will not only support their athletic needs but will be a great confidence booster as well.
