Teamwork Makes the Dreamwork!

My students need a quality parachute for use in physical education classes. The parachute we currently use has several holes in it and needs to be replaced.

My Students

My school is a Title 1 school located in Jonesboro, GA. The majority of students receive free/reduced lunch. The majority of the student body comes from a lower socioeconomic status. The majority of our students are African-American. My school is a neighborhood school and the students come from the neighborhood's surrounding the school. The property values in the immediate area are some of the lowest in the metro Atlanta area. The physical education program currently does not receive any funding from the district to purchase new equipment.

My Project

My school has been using the same parachute for 13 years now. The current parachute has holes and the string is coming out. It badly needs to be replaced. We do not currently receive any funding from the district to replace items such as these. Parachute is one of the favorite activities for all students K-5. It is an activity which encourages teamwork and cooperation among all students. It is an activity that requires all students to be active at the same time. This will be a piece of equipment that we will be able to use for years and years.
