Help me give my students badminton rackets, birdies and a couple footballs so there is enough equipment for everyone to participate. God Bless!
What makes our students so special is the diversity of our school. We have students from so many different backgrounds it really creates an opportunity to truely learn from one another’s cultures. A lot of our students come from very challenging situations outside of school so it’s amazing to watch them grow over their years at Iroquois Hig School. For me, the students are very motivated to participate and help one another so I believe with the right amount of equipment we can create an amazing environment together.
If we are able to get this equipment it will make a tremendous impact for our kids health and well being. Currently the school I am located at has a very small budget to work with. Though I am gracious to have some money to spend on our students, it simply isn't enough to supply equipment for the whole class. Often times I can have up to 50 students in my class and my main goal is to get them active and teach them life long learning concepts such as respect, communication, and how to work as a team. With these badminton rackets it will allow me to have enough to complete a class set so that everyone can get involved in this unit. The footballs will help when we allow the kids to have activity time. Currently our footballs are really beat up and barely able to be used.
In an area where football and basketball are dominated sports, badminton really helps all kids open their minds to something different and allows kids of all different skill levels to play together and truly enjoy what they are doing.
This equipment would be amazing to have and with your help I think we can make it happen! Thank you all so much, it's people like you all that make a true difference in the world!
