We are a school of about 300 students, all living within a planned HUD community. We are a culturally diverse community composed of a school population with more than 20 different cultures and languages spoken. Of those 300 students, approximately 75 of them are English language learners.
We are a Title I school, where 100% of our students qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program.
The majority of our students are living in what is considered to be "extreme poverty," but most of them are not even aware of it. Because of financial burdens, our students typically do not have the opportunities for experiences outside of their small community. We have a large population of students from different cultures who are just beginning to learn English or are continuing to learn academic English.
Pushball or cageball is a simple, but very popular game that helps build teamwork and cohesion. Since it is a simple game, it will allow for all levels of students to participate in physical activities that they might otherwise be reluctant to participate in. The ball can be substituted into almost any ball game, making it ideal for all ages and levels of students at our school.
Having a pushball for our physical education classes and recess times will help get our students excited to work together to accomplish a goal.
The games are easy to organize, involve many students working together, and is also a great cardio activity that students will be excited to join in on.
