Mrs. Tipton from Jeffersonville IN is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Storage For New Equipment

My students need containers to store our new fins and kickboards in to keep them organized and safe from being used by other people using the pool.

My Students

We are a swim team made up of the two local middle schools. Only one of the two schools has a pool so we combine together each day and practice as one. Unfortunately, as awesome as it would seem to be the have the pool, it is not maintained well. We are constantly a very young team because most swimmers in the area end up going to private schools or different districts that have better facilities. Our swimmers are usually learning the basics or learning to better what basic skills they have.

My Project

We need a way to store the new equipment we received so it is safe from being used by other people using our facility. We also want to keep the deck clean and organized to help our swimmers get the most out of each practice. These storage bins can also be used as seating on the deck which will be nice during swim meets and during practice as swimmers get ready. By having a space to keep these, swimmers can also not have to worry about bringing their own equipment each day and could leave it in the storage container.
