My Students

Imagine having a catastrophic flood come and take away your home and school. That is exactly what happened to the students at my school. They are of a low socioeconomic status and in grades 3-5. These children have been through so much and are in need of a break from all of the chaos and destruction that still surrounds them.

This donation would provide them with a chance to just have "fun' and take their minds off of what they have lost.

My students also need this release time during the day to help them concentrate on their schoolwork. This donation would be much appreciated!!

My Project

My students are in need of volleyballs and a volleyball net. Since the flood, my students haven't been able to play volleyball due to losing all of their PE equipment. Volleyball is one sport that my students love to play. We even let the older students try out for a volleyball team.

It would mean so much for my students to be able to play their favorite sport again.

The children would be able to learn the different techniques to hitting a volleyball. Also, the children would be able to understand what it means to be apart of a team.
