My Students

Students at V. I. Elementary are nestled in rural Washington County, Virginia just on the outskirts of a city in Virginia. At V., students look forward to their time in PE each week.

Our students love to move and through that movement, promoting lifelong wellness and activity is the goal.

Students work hard throughout the day and have 45 minutes twice a week to explore movement, sports and physical activity through our PE program. With the rural community, many of the students to do not have the opportunity to participate in organized sports. The exposure they receive to teamwork, fitness and competitive games come through their elementary experiences.

My Project

In order to begin Cardio Drumming at our school, students must have stability balls, rhythm sticks, music and buckets. Currently, we have rhythm sticks, access to fun music and videos and are working on getting buckets. My request is for a donation of the stability balls.

Students will participate in cardio drumming to energetic music with a focus on coordination and rhythm while improving flexibility, balance, cardio and muscle conditioning in a fun environment of high energy.

Participating in Cardio Drumming will improve the students' day. Students will leave the gym more relaxed with their brains prepared for engagement reentering their classroom.
