Help Us BALL!

Help me give my students balls! During break, lunch, and our after school program my kids love to play outside and be active! This project will help us be more active!

My Students

I get to teach the most amazing kids. I know every teacher says that, but mine are truly spectacular. I have a diverse group of learners, many with learning disabilities.

I get to teach 6th grade at a Title I, public school, and my students are currently at a 1st grade achievement level.

Even though we have a lot of work to do academically, they come to school every day eager to dive into work. I hope I can give them the opportunity to succeed in this world.

My Project

Our students are so hardworking! When they have their breaks from academics they deserve to be able to be active! We have break time to play, but we don't have the equipment needed to do this.

These balls will allow my middle grade students to play and be active!

I try to go outside and play with my students, but we often don't have any balls to actually play with!

Often times the students don't have access to play these sports outside of the school with each other! If this project gets funded, these kids will have the opportunity to build community!
