My Students

Our school services about 1,200 middle school students! We would like our PE Program to be innovative, exciting and offer students opportunities to experience games that are special to our program. We also have an inclusion of students from our ESE program and they too can benefit from this activity.

We would like to offer a variety of new sports, games and fitness activities like team Handball, Cross Fit Stations, GaGA Ball, Four Square and Frisbee Golf to keep our students motivated and excited about movement, fitness and good health.

My Project

We want to add new sports and games to our PE curriculum and need help with equipment! It is our goal to keep our students moving and introduce them to more fitness opportunities in PE, so we need help to provide a variety of balls and workout equipment to our classes.

Team Handball, Frisbee Golf, Nine Square in the Air, Cross Fit stations for fitness, and GAGA Ball are just a few of the activities we would love to see our students participating in.

Do to Covid, using our students to do door to door fundraisers is a no go! However, the need to keep our youth active, healthy and fit has never been more important! We thank Donors Choose for the opportunity to put our needs out there for the betterment of our students! Thanks!
