Mrs. McIntosh from Benicia CA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Happier and Healthier

Help me give my students a balance to their day. We are integrating technology with physical education. We needed durable ipad cases to take outside when we get healthy and use our new P.E. equipment.

My Students

Our school campus is nestled in a neighborhood where our students walk to school with smiles on their faces and excited to learn. Our doors are open for many students to eat a hot breakfast before their day of learning. We have created an environment where students feel safe and respected. We work hard each and every day to ensure that all of our students are given the opportunities to become independent learners.

Donations to this project would help our students develop computer skills needed for their education and future jobs.

This project will also allow for improved reading skills while working individually, with a partner and with a team. Being able to work with others is a skill that all students need to develop.

My Project

We are very excited to get healthy this year! The students will use our previously donated iPads to help with their fitness goals. We needed new, durable iPad covers to take outside during our fitness times throughout the day. Our iPads will help us document and track our fitness goals which should be met with the use of our new physical education balls, exercise scarves, hula-hoops, and Velcro paddles.

Our class goal is to get physically and mentally healthy!

We work in fitness teams to support one another in getting healthy. Our new physical education equipment would help us reach our goal by giving us new games to play together as a team. We are up for the exercise challenge!
