My students are 95% Hispanic and low socio economic. Our Physical Education department has struggled to get funds since most of the state's funds are used for other programs in our district. I try to fundraise as much as I can throughout the school year to help purchase equipment for my students who are limited in school equipment that we desperately need to help our students stay physically active. I love that my students get excited about learning various activities in Physical Education, but I just wish I could provide quality equipment for them like other schools are able to provide for their students.
All of my students love to learn various activities during our Physical Education class. Even though our playground at our school is very small, we try to improvise with creative activities their physical education class and during recess. Unfortunately we do not have any basketball courts at our small playground which is limited in space for our growing population of students. With the opportunity of getting portable basketball courts, our students will be able to play freely in other parts of the campus as well as alleviate overcrowding in the playground area which is a safety issue.
By donating to our project, you will help our students enjoy playing freely, comfortably, and learning a new activity which has been lacking in our school.
