My Students

The students at my school are incredible. Ours is a Title I school with approximately 50% of our students receiving free or reduced price meals each day.

My students are working hard each day to master the skills required of them in school, and I want to do all I can to make sure they have the tools they need.

I appreciate your help in meeting the needs of my students, and I know they will appreciate your help, as well.

My Project

Scooter boards will add a new sense of fun to our PE lessons. We are looking for new and exciting ways to develop motor skills and team cooperation.

The scooters are just the piece to the puzzle we are looking for!

Teams can play variations of soccer or hockey against each other, compete in relays, or even alternate a scooter race with fitness activity course! The choices are endless. The roller-blade like wheels on these scooter boards mean they will withstand use on our school blacktop. The stacking cart will keep them safely organized and ready for our next challenge. Thank you for helping my students reach their fitness goals.
