Comeback Kids

Help me give my students come back to safe physical education space in the new school year.

My Students

My students come from low-income, high poverty, and high crime area. Those facts are real, but they do not dampen the spirit of learning and hope. The students are striving to break the cycle of underachievement.

We strive for success every day.

We work hard every day. We do not let the facts of reality become a roadblock to reaching our goals. We are on the road to becoming great. With your help, we will not only be on the road to success, but we will be on the expressway to success.

My Project

Safety is going to be a major priority in the upcoming school year. I have requested Rhino skin balls, and two different types of gym mats. These items will provide a safe environment for scholars when we return. The mats can be used in several ways for safety in physical education.

The mats can be used as dividers.

They can divide the space and keep scholars from coming in too close of contact with one another. This is going to be a major priority for all schools in the fall and going forward.
