My Students

My students are participating in a special program within our school. Our Title I school serves about nine hundred students. We also house many special programs. One of the special programs we offer is for gifted learners. This program has around three hundred students in grades six through eight and I teach about one hundred and fifty-five of them. I have the unique opportunity to teach advanced math to sixth, seventh, and eighth-grade students. I strongly believe good math skills will open up doors for my students to do anything they want in the future.

My students enjoy learning and look forward to being exposed to new material.

They are inquisitive, hardworking, and are always looking for new challenges. My students also love to play fun and interesting games in their free time and like to give back to the community. All of my kids have enjoyed the extras I can give them because of donors like you. They are always amazed at how lucky they are to have such wonderful items that enhance their learning. They have been excited about all of the community service projects and kindness acts we have done throughout the year.

My Project

The sports equipment and games will be used for our PBS (positive behavior support) adventures throughout the school year. Our kids use their positive behavior to earn incentive times throughout the school year and we will end this year with an outside carnival. This outside carnival will have blow up obstacle courses, but we will need more than that to entertain 300 kids at a time. Since we have 850 kids in the school, we will have one grade level outside at a time for our carnival time. We want to include games such as Kan Jam, lawn bowling, and a football throw. This project is the second one in the series. Since we will need a lot of equipment that can be used for years to come, we broke the big project into a few DonorsChoose projects. We appreciate any and all support we can get from wonderful donors such as yourself.

Sports and physical activity is the best way to engage middle schoolers.

With all of the use of cellphones and games, our kids really need to be active. I believe introducing some of these games will help our kids learn new ways to bring fun into their everyday lives. I can envision our kids wanting their parents to purchase some of these items for their own home. This will be a fun way to end the school year.
