Dodge Ball

My students need foam balls and a wedge mat for gymnastics. These balls are imperative to learning and help with the progression of catching and throwing a ball.

My Students

Highline Academy Northeast Charter School opened August 2014 in the Green Valley Ranch community. Highline Academy Northeast has the 2nd highest rated ECE program in DPS and is the highest performing Elementary School in Green Valley Ranch. Our English Language learners are growing in their English competency at one of the highest rates in the district. Together with our founding families and staff, we welcome you to come discover the newest member of the Highline Academy family!

"If we believe in active student learning, we must consider the variety of different ways in which students are encouraged to participate", is a quote by Barry Bennett and Peter Smilanich that describes my teaching here at Highline.

Students come from all over the world and learn in many different ways. Being able to reach each student takes time and a variety of tools. Here at Highline we go above and beyond to make sure all students feel like they can succeed.

My Project

We are hoping to raise enough money to purchase foam balls and a wedge mat. The wedge mat is important because it will help the students during our tumbling unit with rolling the correct way.

The foam balls are essential in many different games that are played throughout the year.

These balls are easy to catch and easy to throw allowing our students to focus on the fundamentals with these skills.

These supplies will help replace old worn out equipment with new easy to use equipment. Our students deserve the best when it comes to staying healthy and getting an education.
