My Students

My students are so important to me. They are great kids who have to deal with a lot of things in their lives. I feel like sports are a great outlet for them to express themselves and get some important life lessons. Sports are so important in my students' lives because they also provide them with something safe to do outside of school. Right during these tough times, I am always wondering what my students are doing at home to keep busy.

This way, when they come back to school I want to have enough resources for students to borrow equipment from school.

So I was thinking some of them would get excited to practice some sports at home to provide them a distraction. My students love sports and practicing their sports skills can help with that.

My Project

When we do get back to school I would love to be able to have every piece of equipment possible for the students. One of the problems I encounter is trying to give homework related to sports. The students do not have the supplies at home to complete the homework. As of right now I do not have enough equipment to lend them any. This is where you can help with some equipment for then to borrow. If you can find a small amount of money from your budget, the kids would greatly appreciate it.
