Help me give my students recess equipment, like footballs and tether-balls, to use and work out their energy!
I work at a low-income school in Clarkston, WA. More than 80% of the students in our school qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program. We have classes with as many as 32 students in them and we house the behavior program for the district. This can sometimes make it difficult to inspire our students to love school and want to be there.
Despite the difficulties our student face, they love our school and want to be there.
Our students are extremely active and spirited.The teachers at my school do a wonderful job of encouraging our students and getting them excited about learning and displaying their learning. Our staff supports each other the best that we can so that we can truly help our students the best that we can. One way that we know we can help our students, is helping them get out their energy. Like many schools, we have noticed a huge difference between when our students are active at recess and get their energy out versus when they just stand around outside at recess and are still energetic while entering the classroom.
I would like to get recess equipment for my students. As a low income school, the majority of our money goes to meeting the other needs of the students: their academic and basic survival needs. Not a lot is left over for recess equipment to help them get their energy out.
Currently, there is typically only one ball at recess, and it is used every day to play kickball.
This means, that all of the other kids that don't want to play kickball get to stand around and find some way to entertain themselves. I would like to have a variety of basketballs, footballs, and other equipment to offer to my students so that they can enjoy recess and get their energy out.
