My Students

In our Physical Education classes we promote good physical health and hard work.

With new Physical Education equipment we can allow our students to be active while having fun, which will in turn increase their personal effort.

This will also effect our team sports class. Both classes are fitness based, however the equipment will allow us to use games to keep the students interested in their personal fitness.

Our students all come from mid to low income housing, meaning not much money will be coming from them.

My Project

This project would allow for our classes to have new sports equipment for all our classes. For some time now we have been in dire need of new athletic and training equipment. Due to a shortage of funds we have decided to us Donor's Choose to raise the necessary funds. We will use the Ladders and Cones for agility training throughout our entire Physical Education Curriculum. The Basketballs, Footballs, and Volleyballs would be used in our Team Sports and Freshmen PE Curriculum. We appreciate the help with expanding our Physical Education equipment and expanding opportunities for us and our students!!
