Just a Swinging, or Not!

My students need new swing seats, so more students will have and opportunity to swing. We also need first aid kits to help with their scraps when falling.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

This year I will have a wide range of students. Most of my students are Native American. Some that are eager to learn, others that will need that extra push to succeed. The children seem to work really well together and encourage each other.

I believe that all students can and will learn regardless of ethnicity.

They just need to be nurtured and encourage to succeed. Some just need to know that they are loved and can achieve their goals as long as they don't quit and never give up.

My Project

My students are in need of some new swing seats. Our other ones have broken and are needing to be replaced. By replacing some of the swing seats, we are ensuring that the safety needs of our students are being meet. Also, when the swing seats have been replaced; more students will have an opportunity swing and become more active during recess.

Safety is the key to happy and healthy kids.

We need first aid kits to ensure quick and easy response times to injuries on the playground. These first aid kits will be given to the teachers to carry with them while on playground duty or while attending an extra curricular activity. Our students safety and well-being is our main concern.
