My school is surrounded by a low income trailer park neighborhood. 80% of our students receive free meal services for breakfast and lunch and a noticeable chunk are sent home with sacks of food over every weekend as part of our food to kids program. Needless to say our students often lack the things we take for granted every day. Although our kids may face difficulties in their lives, they always show up to school with bright smiles on their faces. Eager and willing to learn, our kids work really hard to someday make a difference in their futures.
Physical education is all about teaching students about the never-ending possibilities of staying physically active. What better way, than to introduce a popular north eastern sport that many Texans have never heard of. My students need lacrosse sticks in order to be introduced to the fast, fun and exciting game of Lacrosse.
Lacrosse is a fun, fast, skilled and challenging game that is addicting.
Across America, Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports. It is extremely popular in the North Eastern states and I would love to give my students the opportunity to experience this fast and exciting sport. Lacrosse helps develop student manipulative skills that can transfer to games such as tennis, racketball, and pickleball. The movements and play style of lacrosse mimics that of popular sports such as basketball, soccer, and football. If funded, my students will be able to enjoy a lacrosse unit that focuses on developing manipulative skills along with building physical strength and endurance. This sport would be a rare opportunity to have my students play something they've never done before.
