Scoring Big for Students

Help me give my students a working scoreboard. Our current one is over 20 years old and cannot be fixed. The electronic components need to be replaced.

My Students

My students are enthusiastic and love P.E. class. I work at a Title I school and my students love experiencing new activities and learning more about their fitness. They also like watching how they improve on various fitness activities.

Our sports teams are dedicated and even though we do not have a lot of students that can afford club sports, we are fairly successful because our kids put in the hard work and dedication to succeed.

We want our students to have the best equipment to match their dedicated spirit.

My Project

We have a wonderful scoreboard that has outdated electronic components. Our console no longer works so we are using a flip chart and stop watch to score and time games. We also use it for P.E. classes and have lost that ability too. Seeing the time left in a game and the score on the big board adds excitement and enthusiasm to our classes and games.

We need to have the Daktronics company come in and update our scoreboard.

We are hoping to get it fixed so that our students can play in class and in sporting events and be proud of our school.

We are also in need of track and field tops for our athletes. The current ones are old, faded and have tears in them. It would be nice to have uniforms that the students could wear with pride.
