I am a physical education teacher at college prep middle school, whose mission is to prepare students with the academic skills and character traits necessary to thrive in college and in life. My class allows scholars the opportunity to engage in physical activities so that they can return to the academic setting refreshed and ready to focus. During class, my students are able to acquire new skills, try new sports, and discover that physical activity is fun. I have the privilege of educating over 400, 5th-8th grade scholars who come from educationally under-served communities in and around St. Louis, Missouri. My students love to be active and deserve access to a high-quality physical education experience.
Our scholars love trying new activities each day. Some activities, however, are just not possible in some of the neighborhoods our scholars come from. We have set up intramural projects to allow our scholars to stay after school to have a safe environment to practice sports. Our newest intramural sport is the game of pickle-ball!
Our scholars need pickle-ball equipment to help start an intramural pickle-ball league after school.
Pickle-ball is fast-paced, fun and enjoyable for everyone who picks up a paddle. We would like to bring that fast-paced excitement to our scholars and give them another outlet to practice physical fitness and team sports.
