We've Got to Move to Improve!

My students need to be active and learn the fundamentals of physical education. My students don't have a P.E elective at our school. These materials will help me to get their bodies moving!

My Students

As a small public charter school in San Bernardino, my colleagues and I have a unique freedom on how we teach the standards. With that freedom can come a tough road of hours of late night searches for an engaging curriculum.

Students who live in our low income neighborhood come to school with many challenges.

Despite their challenges, my students come to school ready to learn and are putting in the work to see growth. In order to see these gains, I need to provide them with engaging and rigorous curriculum. Each and every one of my kids is full of potential, I would in return provide them with the tools and resources they need to meet it.

My Project

I am requesting some help gathering P.E equipment for our students. We are a part of a small school and we currently do not have any outside electives for our students such as Art and P.E. I'd like to help improve the health and wellness of our little ones. Some of the supplies are so simple, yet will make such a big impact. Pinnies, bean bags and hula hoops make for some great games that will both get the students heart rate going and teach them the fundamentals of teamwork. I've also asked for help with some team sports that I know my kids will enjoy such as soccer and football. These sports will teach them coordination and will hopefully ignite a spark to get involved in playing in our community!

We need to move to improve.

These supplies will also help the students be active during the school day and allow them to be better focused in class. We need a jump start on healthy and effective Physical Education time. By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to improve the health of the youth of our school.
