Mrs. McKay from Houma LA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Great in Golf!

Help me give my students golf club starter sets, resistance bands, dumbbells for the opportunity to experience golf in the PE setting. Also, you would help them complete our badminton set and work out equipment.

My Students

My students are MY students. Which means....they are like my own children. I will strive to give them everything they need. Most the time that means a place to play and be loved. At times it may mean guidance, encouragement, and yes, sometimes a new pair of tennis shoes.

You see... our school services a low-income area.

A vast majority of our students qualify for free lunch. I teach physical education to these students. I teach team the fundamentals of new games, how to show good sportsmanship, teamwork, and fitness.

My Project

I pride my PE class on introducing my students to sports and games they may have not been able to experience yet. The main portion of my project is requesting golfing equipment. Things such as clubs, balls, and hole markers. I would really love to give my students the opportunity to learn how to swing a golf club and make a putt.

Also, my project requested a little bit of badminton items.

A couple years ago I did a project that was funded to bring badminton into my room. We need a few more rackets and birdies to complete our set.

Lastly, I wrapped up my project request with weight training objects and potato sacks for racing. My students love to work out with weights and we only have the few I brought from my house. They will love to have a few more options. The sack racing is a fun way to get some exercise in with a few laughs.
