Mrs. Schliesman from Gunnison CO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bounce to School With Family

My students need a bouncy house for several school events to engage and include all families. These large inflatables provide hours of safe fun and draw hundreds of children and their families to our school.

My Students

We are nestled in a rural mountain community, surrounded by wilderness and adventure. Despite having ample opportunities and access to physical activities, many of our students may never experience quality time with their hard-working families.

With indoor activity and event centers nearly 4 hours away, few of our students and families have experienced the joy and excitement of exercise in a safe and welcoming environment.

We are a Title 1 school and many of our students go home to empty houses while their parents work full-time jobs to make ends meet. It is our mission, as a Physical Education Department, to provide free, fun, family events that give back to our community. We want our students and families to take a moment from life's busy rush to enjoy each other and to be part of an extended family of friends, teachers, and students, creating the village that it truly takes to raise a healthy child.

My Project

Our elementary PE department is on a mission to include and bring families together. We want to continue to offer a safe, healthy, and loving environment where all are welcome. By funding this project, donors are giving the gift of time with families, teachers, and friends.

Help us connect our community by creating a safe and welcoming environment for families at our school!

Our first step in our project is purchasing a large, inflatable bouncy house to help draw our families and students. In the past, we have had much success with these events, however renting the equipment is not sustainable.

By purchasing this bouncy house, we are ensuring that we can continue to offer these popular family fun attractions at various school functions. This inflatable will be present at events such as Back-to-School Day, Family Fun Night, and Field Day. Without the financial burden of renting, we can make this and similar attractions more available to our families.

Thank you for choosing to be part of our family and community through your donation.
