My Students

Our students are middle school students in sixth, seventh, and eighth grade. Several classes of students come to physical education each class period. It is a great opportunity for students to get moving in a focused and meaningful way.

Our students enter the gym with a high level of excitement!

The gym explodes with chatter and anticipation as students get ready to start the day's activity. We aim to motivate students to stay active and to try new activities and sports by attempting to keep activities engaging, challenging, and fun!

My Project

These borders will have a huge impact on Physical Education classes. Each of the requested Borderline Barrier set of 6 borders can be connected together and will pivot in order to set up a boundary area suitable for the activity.

These borders can be used for floor hockey, pickleball, and more!

They can be easily adjusted and will serve as a visual as well as physical barrier to help students keep the ball in play. The longer the ball is in play, the less chasing students have to do...and the more they can focus on developing and honing their skills.

Students love playing more and chasing the ball less as they use these borders in Physical Education class!
