Ms. Schramm from Salinas CA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Run! Jump! Teamwork! Physically Fit and Active Fourth Graders!

My students need equipment to do P.E. They are very active learners and need to use their energy productively. We currently do not have any PE equipment. Many of them want to join the basketball team. We need jump ropes, soccer cones and more.

My Students

I teach fourth grade students in a Title 1 district in Salinas, CA. The entire school is eligible for free lunch. The students come from a variety of backgrounds with many coming from Spanish speaking homes and low socioeconomic backgrounds. Despite the many challenges many of the students face at home, they are excited to come to school and learn every day.

My students are very active and enjoy hands on learning.

They enjoy working together on group projects, and enjoy playing team sports after school and during recess.

My Project

The students will use the materials to do daily PE activities. Currently we do not have any PE equipment at all. The students are very active and excited about physical activity and learning to build team working skills.

Many of the students want to join the basketball or soccer team, but don't have the knowledge or confidence to try out.

The basketballs, jump ropes, cones, and scoops will help all of the students have fun and be more engaged during P.E. With your help these children will be able to reach their goals, learn more about team sports, get fit, healthy and have fun!
