My Students

Here at K.E., we have a wonderful group of students who enjoy being active and taking in the opportunities that our wonderful state has to offer. Our students truly enjoy the outdoors, hiking trails, biking in their neighborhoods, and a number of different organized sports as well.

Being active on our playground during the school day is something that our students crave and need to be successful students at our school.

At this time, we have limited equipment available for students to be able to use outdoors, we would like to provide additional equipment to broaden the outdoor experience our students can have as well as provide a cart for safe storage and mobility of these items.

As a PE teacher, I am an advocate for a healthy active lifestyle. This equipment will give our students an opportunity to learn new games, and develop a greater sense of team work and good sportsmanship. A number of our students may not have access to these types of games, nor a yard that affords space to play. Your generous donation will help fund these and items and in turn help foster long lasting friendships in our school community.

My Project

We have a unique climate here with our long winters and colder temperatures, providing access to this equipment and encouraging having fun while outdoors is crucial to the success of our students at school and at home.

Our students use the outdoor space on a daily basis and are always in search of an opportunity to learn and play.

Kasuun means "a beautiful place" in Athabascan, please help us provide this equipment to promote the healthy and active lifestyle, and desire to seek fun in the outdoors that our students here at K.E. need to help keep it a beautiful place!
