My Students

My students are amazing human beings. Our school is based around arts integration in all of our courses and my students are amazing artists in all aspects. They work extremely hard and use their artistic talents to enrich the school atmosphere and environment. With the pandemic, unfortunately our students have really struggled coming back to school and getting the socialization and physical activity they need. Without that important socialization and physical activity we have seen higher stress levels and inactivity in our students.

My Project

We want to add more activities our students have been asking for in our PE classes to get them excited to participate each day. We want to replace all the old equipment and add some activities so students have better access to more reliable and newer equipment. For years my students have asked for actual jump ropes, real pickleball equipment, and more badminton birdies. We want to make our yoga sections better for not only physical activity but more mental health and mindfulness as a class and part of the PE program.

We can't wait to help bring in the items our students have wanted for so long!
