My Students

We have an active and ethnically diverse group of students. About 83% of our students come from low income homes which qualifies us as a 100% free and reduced-price lunch school. While our students could be defined by the low income numbers or their native language, they are just regular junior high kids, some want to learn, some don’t; some love to read, some don’t; some enjoy school, some not so much.

But at our school we strive to give everyone the same opportunities no matter what things look like at home or what their background is or how excited they are about learning.

The same education. The same opportunities. Everyone.

My Project

We would like to add opportunities for our students to try out and play with sporting equipment during their lunchtime break. Currently, students have limited access to equipment that is leftover from sports teams which is often broken or easily deflated.

By allowing students the opportunity to play with sporting equipment during the lunch break, we are encouraging them to be more active and are promoting physical wellness.

A recent study in Finland concludes that "[Physical activity] has also been noted to have a positive effect on learning and cognitive functions, such as memory and executive functions and, as a result, possibly on academic achievement." (oph.fi)

More active bodies promotes more active minds.

Additionally, by allowing students the use of sporting equipment, we hope to encourage more participation in team sports. Soccer, Volleyball, Football would all be represented with the new equipment.
