My Students

Our students are part of a district that is considered one of the most diverse in the nation. They speak many different languages and come from a variety of ethnic and religious backgrounds. Our school has recently lost its Title I funding, and we are struggling to provide the learning opportunities our students deserve with less money and support.

These students have caring and kind personalities and they try their best to rise to the educational demands we put on them.

While working hard on a daily basis, they yearn for the chance to be silly and playful. Our students should start their school career building fun memories, healthy relationships, and an academic foundation that will lead them towards success.

My Project

Living in Alaska, we only have a short window during the school year when the asphalt on the playground is accessible to the students. They work hard all day long, and they want to play even harder when the recess bell rings. Basketball, football, soccer, 4-square, jump roping, and building obstacle courses are some of our students' favorite outdoor activities.

We need equipment so our students can practice the sports they love and learn to work together with their peers.

We try and provide opportunities for our students to thrive socially within the classroom, but nothing can compare to the connections they make on the playground. This sports equipment will allow over 350 students the chance to play the games they love, while learning and staying active at the same time.
