My students need new volleyballs and soccer balls for our elementary sport teams.
Physical Education class is the time for friendships, building of physical foundations and lifelong passions. We often are able to introduce students to sports and activities that they can participate in many years to come. Physical activity needs to be an activity that children not only enjoy but find a hidden passion about.
"Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity." John F Kennedy
Our students come from low socioeconomic, inner city apartments and homes. 100% of them are enrolled in the Federal Free Lunch Program. Many of them speak English as a Second Language. However, that does not hinder their love for physical movement, learning and daily life skills.
Our school participates in the Police Athletic League elementary sports programs. Because of this amazing program the number of students wanting to participate grows each season! We are only given a small amount of equipment and need more in order for each child to have an adequate amount of practice and movement. Being able to have enough soccer balls and volleyballs that are of appropriate size will allow the athletes to be able to practice their skills. Our students love to participate in sports and being able to give each one of them the chance to do that and do it with enough equipment is the goal of every coach and teacher!
The soccer balls will allow each of our 4-6th grade soccer teams (girls and boys) to have enough equipment for each team.
The volleyball team will have new balls that are not torn and falling apart.
