Shooting Hoops for Success

My students need a basketball hoop for outside since our permanent hoops were taken away to make a bus loop.

My Students

We have 1,442 students at my school. 77% are on free or reduced-price lunch. Our students love PE class. It's a time where they can get exercise and get out energy after sitting in a core class for one or more hours. It's fun to watch them come to class and wearing a smile.

My students are very respectful to our PE staff as well as each other.

For some of my students, PE is where they can excel. Some don't speak any English; however, they have great knowledge about sports. Sometimes the PE class is where they can shine and feel good about themselves.

My Project

We have two middle school PE coaches and one elementary PE coach. We take turns using the gym so a class is in the gym for two weeks and outside for four weeks.

We all have a unit on basketball and we test students skills as well as written tests on the rules of basketball.

We lost our permanent hoops due to construction of a bus loop. Therefore, we can only play basketball every four weeks when we are in the gym.

Our students would benefit physically, as well as emotionally, to be able to play basketball more than every four weeks.

Thank you for considering my request for a basketball hoop.
