My students need softball helmets, soccer balls, and volleyballs. Throughout the year my students must borrow equipment from surrounding schools in order to have enough to even practice with. Thank you!
As a Title 1 School more than half of our children are from families’ poor enough to enable them to be eligible for free or reduced-price school lunches, and they don't have a lot of money to spend on school sports.
Despite the many challenges my students face coming from low-income/high poverty households, they are eager to learn and expand their learning through sport related experiences.
Sports can assist in motivating a child toward self-improvement in healthy, productive ways, and teach skills that with be helpful throughout their lives.
My student-athletes will use the equipment in both their gym classes and team sports. The softball helmets will allow us to have a team set and not have to share or borrow from other teams. The volleyball and soccer balls will be used during both practice and games. The skills gained from doing sports, such as learning to focus and to improvise, could improve their academic performance. Students are often advised to exercise because of its mood-enhancing properties and for good reason. The saying that a healthy body equals a healthy mind is absolutely true. For a long time, sports have been viewed as a way to stay healthy and in shape, but their importance goes much further. As a matter of fact, playing sports teaches life lessons like discipline, responsibility, self-confidence, accountability, and teamwork. From a social standpoint, sports are a powerful tool that brings people together and creates a sense of community. My student are wonderful kids who deserve better opportunities.
