School:  McClintock Middle School
Teacher:  Mrs. Torres

My students need:

Do you remember being in school and waiting anxiously to go outside for recess to jump rope with your friends? I am requesting a set of jump ropes so that my students can find a healthy outlet to enjoy their recess.

School Metropolitan Ministries Es
Teacher Mrs. Johnson

My students need:

I teach in an elementary school that serves homeless children and many of my students live in the shelter which partners with our school. Living quarters are tight, so when they get a chance to run and play, they love it! I am requesting a set of soft gym mats to cushion the hard floor to help my students enjoy their quest to achieve their physical fitness goals.
