My Students

I believe my students deserve the opportunity to learn in a safe and secure environment. They need a strong foundation for lifelong learning by nurturing, guiding, and challenging them to achieve their maximum potential. My goal is to prepare my students physically, socially, mentally, and intellectually to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.

"Intelligence and skill can only function at the peak of their capacity when the body is healthy and strong."

- John F. Kennedy

Providing students with a safe environment will result in optimal physical learning. It is my responsibility to teach safe practices that will protect students from preventable injuries. Even though injuries will happen, it is my job to ensure appropriate measures and actions are taken to minimize possible risks. This is done by establishing strict rules, policies, and the proper use of physical education equipment.

Please donate to help my students achieve great physical health and to reach their full potential l in sports.

My Project

Kids today look up to professional athletes as role models. I want to provide them with the opportunity that one day, a child could look at them the same way. I would need the following equipment that will help my students bring out their unhidden talents in Physical Education: Volleyballs, Soccer balls and Footballs. They will be used in our Units while practicing our fundamentals including passing, kicking and spiking. They will experience new sports and reach their fullest potential. One day they will look back at their accomplishments in sports and realized he helped them in the classroom.

Success is where preparation and opportunity meet.

I want my students to have success in physical education that leads​ them to opportunities later in life.

Mr. Amuso
Grades 6-8
Nearly all students from low‑income households
