My Students

Do you remember what it was like to have wellness time in your classroom? You could not wait to get outside and be able to move. In today's busy classrooms it is hard to find enough time in the day to include this in our busy curriculum.

We are a title one public school where our students come from a variety of homes.

Some live in single parent families, some live with grandparents, and some live with both parents. The economics of our school range from about 75-85% free and reduced students to 15-25% full pay students.

My Project

I want to be able to bring back wellness time to my students in their everyday curriculum. I want my students to be able to move around and exercise daily. I believe that with everyday movement activities, it helps increase a child's learning abilities. We all need to move and exercise our bodies. I want to be able to not only exercise my students minds, I want to include their bodies too. My problem is with all of the economic cutbacks I am not able to provide all of the equipment that I would like for my students. With your help I can provide playground balls, jumpropes, sports equipment, and hula hoops to incorporate movement.

I believe this project is very important because with the growing number of ADD and ADHD students we see in our classrooms, it is VERY hard for them to sit and stay focused on their academics if their bodies and minds are not relaxed.

I want to be able to relax my students through a curriculum that includes an everyday movement time. With your help I will be able to provide the equipment to do this. Thank you for your support!
