"WORK HARD! PLAY HARD!" This is the motto our students live by!
Despite so many hardships, our students are still eager to come to school to learn and do their very best.
Because of the high poverty in our area, 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch at school. They work hard in the classrooms, and play hard on the field during recess and P.E.!
When an opportunity presents itself like joining the choir, entering a talent show or competing in sports contests nearly every student signs up. They strive to "belong" and are motivated to "give it their all"!
These ultra-foam bowling pins would be great to use in Physical Education classes. They would serve as the targets that students aim for and try to hit or knock down. (That's a much safer alternative to the traditional game of dodgeball!)
When students can apply the physical education skills they need to master to activities they enjoy, it keeps them motivated.
There are so many activities and games that these bowling pins can be used for. Oh what fun it will be to practice underhand rolling, overhand throwing, and guarding skills using these sturdy, yet lightweight bowling pins as targets!
