Mr. Bault from Cardington OH is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Play the National Anthem and then Play Ball.

My students need a blue tooth speaker system so we can play the national anthem before our baseball games.

My Students

My students live just North of Columbus in a very rural area. The area is low-income with 46% of our students living in poverty. Despite most students being economically disadvantaged, they are great students to work with who have a positive outlook on life. My goal is to provide them with as many opportunities as I can and to help set them up to be successful adults. I can't wait to work with DonorsChoose.org to provide them with materials that will enrich their lives.

My Project

I am the head baseball coach at my school. Our field does not currently have a PA system that allows us to play the national anthem before games or announce anything during special occasions such as senior nights. My athletes would love to be able to play our national anthem before our games to honor our nation just as they do in the other sports games they participate in. The requested speaker will allow us to play the anthem before each home game, announce play by play calls and have the ability to announce our seniors properly at their last home game. Please consider supporting us.
