Boosting Achievement with Balance and Body Movements
City:  Indianapolis, IN
School:  Rousseau McClellan 91
Teacher:  Ms Hines

My students need:

My students are fourth, fifth, and sixth graders who attend an urban Montessori magnet school in Indiana. After learning how to boost academic achievement and improve student focus, I am requesting rotation and balance boards, bean bags, rubber, balls, and an agility ladder. These materials will allow my students to fully participate in the balance activities and body movements.


P.E. Equipment
City: Nashville, TN
School Wright Middle School
Teacher Ms. Dillingham's

My students need:

In our urban school with low-income students, our PE department has not received funding in several years to replace equipment. To provide my students with the equipment they deserve, I am requesting footballs, basketballs, jump ropes, and soccer balls to help our kids get more physically active. This project is so important because many of our students live in neighborhoods where it is not safe to play outside, so they get their outside time at school.
