Mrs. Woerner from Newark DE is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

My classroom is full of eager learners who are also very active. Many of my students come from what is considered low-income families. 100 percent of the students in my school receive free lunch and breakfast. My students come from situations adults would have a difficult time dealing with. Yet these children walk into my room every day and give me everything they can. I want to give them everything I can to help them achieve their full potential. These students would do anything to help each other.

My Project

Due to budget cuts across our district, the recess equipment we ordered for our students did not come. We have over seventy students who have to share six swings and three slides.

Let’s put the fun back in recess!

These students need different equipment to share and play with. The materials requested will allow students quite a bit of choice and a chance to try new activities with new friends.

Who wouldn’t want to start a game of kickball or soccer with a variety of balls? Jump rope and double dutch are a great way to exercise and make new friends.
