I teach Physical Education to a varied population of students K through 3 with special needs. Our school is ranked as a high poverty school, with 99% of our students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. Speaking for the whole school, we would like to help those students to be part of a Hawks track and field team.
We need some Blue youth size T-shirts so we can see who is on our team.
We want our young athletes to feel part of the team. Wearing identical uniforms creates a sense of equality, which is important when you are trying to win as a group.
Help my students to look like a team. We can use these blue shirts over and over when we have track meets. We have our track meets twice a year.
By having these Blue T-shirts it would help us see where our young athletes are at and we can cheer for them.
Our fans can show their support and loyalty to our team, and players can show their dedication to each other. Our Track team helps to promote a sense of pride and belonging to an extracurricular activity, and that helps to increase feelings of significance and self-worth. We need these T-shirts to build their self-confidence.
