Ms. DeMaria from Lakeport CA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Multiple Uses with Simple Materials

My students need a badminton net, hoops, a throw down base set, flag football belt sets, and a kickball, to play a variety of games. Most items on this list will be used in multiple activities throughout the year.

My Students

My students are a unique group of individuals. We have families that have lived in our county for generations. Many of our students' parents and often grandparents have attended our school. We also have many new families that were drawn to the community because of rural living. Unfortunately, the majority of our students are considered low income. My students are unique in the way that while some may come from solid and supportive families and others from broken or absent families, they are able to work together in a cohesive way with compassion and understanding.

Each one of my students are inspired to be the best version of themselves.

Each one, whether they are confident athletes or just learning to live a healthy lifestyle, is capable of pushing themselves past their comfort zone to achieve their goals.

My Project

This is my first year teaching physical education. As I progress through the school year and the different activities that I would like to implement, I run into the problem of not having enough equipment or very damaged/old equipment.

The nets will allow pickleball and badminton to be played during the winter months.

Flag football is in huge demand by my students, yet I have only found pieces to the set that must have been purchased many years ago. Hula hoops are a versatile and easy piece of equipment for games, teamwork activities, and fitness. I truly believe this will support my students' progress in physical education.
