Let’s Fly With It

My Students

My culturally diverse students attend a Title I school and do not have many opportunities to participate in extra curricular activities outside of the school day. Throughout the course of the year I try to expose them to a wide variety of activities to promote healthy and active lifestyles. Due to budget cuts, resources and funding are non existent. My students would be extremely appreciative of any help we will receive to help better our understanding of the performing arts.

My Project

I am excited to start a new school year! With a new school year comes the need for new equipment. I am looking forward to adding Badminton to my teaching arsenal. My students will enjoy learning about the sport and working as a team in a competitive atmosphere. Badminton is not a sport every child has the opportunity to learn, so with this project I look forward to giving my students the experience to learn a fun sport that has years of history behind it. My request for so many racquets is to provide each student with one and have a couple as backups in the event one becomes damaged.
