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 breakfasts and lunches each day. We have a weekend food program for students too.

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

We are in need of tennis balls, foam discs, and chalk to expand and enhance our PE each day. The tennis balls and foam discs are always a favorite. This is why they need to be replaced. The balls have lost their bounce and the discs are falling apart. Replacements would be great for us to have. These are the most popular items that students use to play games and do laps around our playground with. Last, we would LOVE to have sidewalk chalk for PE too. It would be a fun way to get movement and learn too. They could write their spelling words on the playground, play tic tac toe, draw a picture, etc. I'd love to have them to explore this opportunity. Please know that we would appreciate your support by providing tennis balls, foam disc, and sidewalk chalk for our PE time. Thanks for your consideration.
