My Students

My students are optimistic and hopeful. They are survivors of the Camp Fire who are currently finishing their 8th grade year of school in Magalia, CA.

These 8th grade students are demonstrating resilience in every way imaginable.

Every day is difficult, and nothing is easy in our current situation. These students have 3 months left before their 8th grade promotion to high school. At such an important time in their lives, I want to give them the best experience possible.

My Project

My 8th grade students have been having a hard time getting excited for PE following the wildfire. Basketball has been their most desired activity by far. We have a beautiful indoor gym, and great outdoor courts as well. The only thing we're missing is proper equipment. We currently have a small selection of worn out basketballs that is inadequate for an entire class. My students appreciate what they have, but they deserve so much better.

Every kid fantasizes about taking that last-second shot to win the game.

I want my students to have basketball equipment that makes their games feel magical. I know that having high quality equipment available for all students will help boost everyone's spirit and improve physical education. This project will truly get every student on the court and having fun.
