The earliest years of childhood are critical. Experiences during this time literally shape the structure of the brain. Because today’s children are tomorrow’s leaders, parents, and workers, everyone has a stake in making sure that all children have the experiences they need to thrive. My students deserve these experiences!
The students I serve are from a rural county in North Carolina and they attend Title I schools.
Title I schools have large concentrations of low-income students. Low-income students are determined by the number of students enrolled in the free and reduced-price lunch program. For an entire school to qualify for Title I funds, at least 40% of students must enroll in the free and reduced-price lunch program.
Funding my project will ensure every child has all they need for healthy growth and development.
With the addition of a gymnastics wedge mat my students will be able to gain valuable tumbling experiences. A gymnastics wedge mat will allow my students to safely learn forward, backward, log, pencil and egg rolls. This opportunity will have a profound impact on my students confidence as they progress through their gymnastics classes.
By donating to my project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
Students who are physically fit tend to do better in school, have more confidence and do better on standardized tests!
