Mr. Aufdengarten from Moore OK is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ready for Recess

Help me give my students the opportunity to obtain new playground balls. Exercise is so important for their development and when I asked the children what they wanted the most, they simply replied that they wished for these.

My Students

They come into my classroom every morning smiling and laughing! I've been teaching for two years and it always makes my day when I see their bright faces. Thank you in advance for helping keep smiles on my student's face! I teach at a Title I school. Title I means that almost 90% of our students are below the poverty line. They struggle with having classroom supplies, coats, food, and even a safe, warm home. My students never let these challenges keep them down for long!

My Project

Our students deserve the very best. We live in a community that loves playing soccer, football, and basketball. The children are requesting just a handful of sports balls for recess. Each of the children is dedicated to giving their best every day. They deserve the very best. It is so much fun to see the smiles on their faces. We want to offer them more options to play outside and the ability to work together on a team during recess. We really hope to provide them with some more sports supplies so that they can get the exercise that they need and perform at their best. Please take part in helping this dream come true for them.
