My Students

Our school is in a very diverse part of the Bay Area. We have many different cultures that attend our school which allows all cultures to intermingle and learn all about one another.

What is so amazing and wonderful about our school is our student parents love to volunteer.

Parents will volunteer in the classroom, for school-wide events, to help out for supervision, and they volunteer to drive for field trips. Our school is a larger school having Kindergarten through Fifth Grade along with Special Day Classes and a Transitional Kindergarten class as well. Our school district is one of the fastest growing districts around which also provides some challenges.

My Project

Our class is asking for a wide variety of sporting equipment so our students can enjoy their recesses! We are asking for footballs and basketballs so students can enjoy these sports during their recess and free time. We are also asking for different size playground balls so students can play anything from, Kickball to Four Square to Kickback. We are also asking for some jump ropes so students can stay active. All of these items will be used on a daily basis by all students not only in our class but others!

Currently, our school has limited resources to purchase equipment and most of our balls have popped or been lost these balls will be used by everyone!

We want to show the students that playing sports can be competitive as well as fun. Also anyone can play sports and any level can enjoy sports as well!!!
