My Students

My students are inquisitive, engaging fourth graders. They are curious students who love to ask questions and extend their learning. Our classroom is a warm and welcoming community of learners. These amazing young people bring their cultural backgrounds into our class of learners to create a diverse classroom community.

Our 3rd through 8th graders and their families chose to attend this school to be a part of our wonderful, small school learning environment.

I teach at a public magnet school with less than 400 students in 3rd-8th grades, which provides a unique opportunity for upper elementary and middle school students to share the same campus and school community. As a school of choice instead of a neighborhood zoned school, we have students enrolled from throughout the district's different school zones.

My Project

I am requesting sports equipment to help my students stay fit and healthy while they play. Having breaks from academics helps ensure that students are focused on their schoolwork. It is equally important to keep their bodies healthy so their minds can learn! They have morning and lunch recess each day when they can run around playing outside in semi-structured games with their classmates and peers from other classes.

Running around while playing semi-structured sports activities during recess will help my students stay active.

They are eager to learn, but they are just as eager to play! With paddle catch, jump ropes, volleyballs, fitness dice, and lots of nontraditional frisbees, my students will have lots of options to keep moving. I want to provide sports equipment that will encourage them to be active during their recess breaks.
