My Students

Being a brand new school in a temporary facility, we are limited on space and resources. We would like to incorporate some sports that are not necessarily in the "mainstream" and that students can play for many years. We have a good space for badminton and lacrosse and we are excited to offer them.

Our students are very academically driven and innately curious.

Our school is a charter school looking to pave the way for a new model of hands-on learning and investing in the children's natural desire to learn and experiment. We are in a temporary facility and in desperate need of items to allow for some physical activities that would deviate from the norm.

My Project

My students need 5 ball sets, 12 mono-fling sports nets, 1 portable net, jump ropes, and other indoor equipment for winter physical education activities. We hope to introduce the students to some sports they have never before played with the ultimate goal being that of providing an opportunity for a lifetime of fitness. Because we have such limited space and resources we want to provide a dedicated space to explore these new physical activities in a judgment free and non-competitive zone. Encouragement, excitement, and creativity are the driving force behind what we are striving to accomplish.

We want to emphasize the fact that being active is a crucial component that can accentuate a healthful lifestyle.

We would like for our students to be excited about trying new things, and not fearful of the possibility of failure and judgment. We believe that sound body can only enhance a sound mind and want our students to feel that each one cannot exist in harmony without the other.
