My Students

Our school has almost 500 students, K-7, who love Physical Education! I see every student once a week. We rarely go outside to play, so I want to teach the students how to exercise inside. Wouldn't it be wonderful if they could then go home and teach their families what they have learned? By doing this, the entire family will be exercising together, and everyone would be in shape! Help me help them so we end the trend towards childhood obesity!

With your help, we can get our students on the right track to start their own fitness program.

Students will benefit from this program for many years to come. Teaching the students the importance of staying in shape is the key to their future.

My Project

Having clear containers to store our smaller items in will make it so easy to see what we have. Right now we have a great deal in cardboard boxes and have to dig for things. The containers will be easy to stack too for storage. Not only can we see what we have we won't forget what we have. Just last week we were looking for some balls and had to go through several boxes before we came across them. We have 3 clear boxes now and it make it so easy to find those items. It will save so much time not searching though several boxes to find items.
