My Students

My students live in La Habra, California, and most come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. They have a strong desire to learn, explore, and play. We are a Title I school and many of my students' families do not have the financial resources to provide them with the tools they need in and out of the classroom.

Our goal is to provide our students with a well-rounded education.

We want them to come to school and have fun with the equipment while learning fundamentals and teamwork through our PE program. Many of our students need an outlet from the rigor of the classroom environment. Having this equipment will help in planning out activities.

My Project

As 6th grade teachers, we are to provide a PE program for all of our students. Our school was recently restructured from a K-2 school to a K-6 school, so we need grade-appropriate equipment. We need the proper equipment to be able to effectively reach our goals. We are asking for footballs, dodge balls, soccer balls, basketballs, and the materials needed to mark our fields. Our goal is to teach these organized sport activities but we cannot do this without the equipment. The materials we are asking for will not only be used this year but will be used for years to come. We currently have around 60 students and do not have the proper equipment to create organized sports activities. Along with our nutrition curriculum, we are teaching our students the benefits of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Sports is a great outlet for many children. It is a wonderful way to teach them how to have fun and work as a team.
