My Students

With my school being an alternative high school we have students here for a wide variety of reasons but the one thing that they all have in common is that they need more physical activity. Our students do all of their work on laptops going at their own pace. This works very well for most of them but unfortunately means they are sitting almost all day long & a lot of them struggle to stay focused.

There is currently no PE program in place at the school & I have been brought in to start one.

The majority of kids here have expressed a lot of interest in being able to participate in any type of physical activity which is exciting. They are all excited about the possibility of being able to get up & get moving during the school day.

Most of our students do not have the best home lives & face many challenges. Sports & other healthy, positive activities are not encouraged or financially possible for the majority of the kids here. This is a real shame because the need for positive outlets is great among our student population.

My Project

We are building a PE/Fitness program from scratch here at our school. Since our students sit working on laptops almost all day, most of them struggle to sit still & stay focused. The kids are very excited about the idea of getting out of their seats & getting the chance to be physically active. I know, & research supports, that being physically active not only benefits health but enhances focus & productivity for students. If students can establish some healthy habits now it can benefit them throughout their lives as well.

There is limited space here at our school & we have no equipment as of yet.

I am requesting two sets of kettebells because they don't take up a lot of space & they can be used in many different ways. With these kettebells, students will be able to have fun with a lot of different exercise options. Also, most of our students have no way to have access to exercise equipment except for whatever I am able to get here at the school & I'd like to expose them to as many different exercise options as I can.
