My Students

Hello wonderful Donorschoose donors! I want to thank you for your time as I introduce to the most awesome middle school students I have the pleasure to teach. The students in our school district have the distinct opportunity to be part of a culture that is rich in diversity and very supportive of student learning. Our students work hard and have many many successes in and out of the classroom. All students in our school district believe in BEING FIT FOR LIFE as the Physical Education curriculum is one hundred percent fitness based.

The school district has set the precedent that fitness is valued for everyone and our students see this modeled at every grade level.

Our students enjoy engaging in many different types of fitness activities and truly comprehend why fitness is extremely valuable and important.

My Project

Our curriculum is based on the five components of fitness. Our students create their own personal fitness program and lacrosse will be a part of that curriculum. Our students love to engage in fitness activities to get their heart rates up into their target heart rate zones.

Have the necessary equipment to play lacrosse is vital to helping our students succeed with building fitness for life.

The concepts we teach our students are for them to use for the rest of their lives so that they can remain healthy and continue to exercise throughout their whole lives. Thank you to Indiana Sports for helping me to provide for my students.
