My Students

My students are awesome. They deserve all the resources to help them achieve success. My students attend a Title I school that is considered high poverty. We have almost 50% of our students receiving free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch each day. We even have a weekend food program.

My students are working extremely hard to be successful with the Common Core curriculum, and I want to get them all the resources to achieve this.

I appreciate how hard they work for me each day, and I know they'd appreciate any support you could give them.

My Project

That's what we need...discs and hoops. My students are in need of a new set of soft discs and hoops. The soft discs are fabulous because they allow the students to play but not get hurt. I didn't realize how many times students get hit when learning to play with a disc. These soft discs still let the students have a lot of fun while they're learning. Presently, our discs are falling apart, and we don't have enough for the whole class. A new set would be awesome to have. Additionally, we need new hoops for continued fun at PE. Many have been bent over time and they need to be replaced. New hoops would make PE a lot more enjoyable. As you can see, discs and hoops would be an amazing addition to our weekly PE sessions....hoping you're able to help us out.
