Support #ThisSchool!

$3,445 of $100k goal

Raised by 77 people in 36 months
We are two teachers at Union Grove HS in Union Grove, WI. Mr. Hein teaches PE/Health, and Mr. Brachmann teaches Science. We are raising money for a variety of school specific projects. Here's what we need for each classroom:

Whole Community Projects: We are looking for a private or corporate sponsor for the construction of a new community fitness center. This would be an addition to our existing school and would be available for use for every community member, young and old! Estimated cost of project is $800,000. Help us build a stronger, healthier community! Contact Jordan Hein for details: jhein@ug.k12.wi.us 





Mr. Hein-
Small projects: Pedometers, Heart Rate Monitors, jerseys, soccer balls, badminton equipment, tennis racquets, yoga mats/equipment, exercise equipment for community and school

Large Projects: exercise equipment (adaptive PE hand bike, elliptical machines, weight equipment), Class sets of heart rate monitors, fitness testing equipment, ropes/adventure education course.  


Mr. Brachmann-
Small projects: Fish tank, incubator and egg hatching supplies, model rockets, dissection supplies, general money for ongoing labs (foods and perishable goods), document camera, general lab supplies (markers, crayons, paper, scissors, rulers...)


Large Projects: Astronomy/Meteorology field trip subsidies (Each class takes a trip which is generally around $20/student. We'd like that lower for more students to go), incubator for petri dishes, microscopes, accelerometers, and digital cameras for video projects (All freshman partake in a "Mythbusters" assignment that is to be filmed and edited for class viewing.)

Hi everyone!

Thank you so much for your support! This past month, I was selected by NASA to go view, and live tweet, their OCO2 satellite launch at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Your donations (1/2) were in part used to help fund my trip out there. The information I gathered at Vandenberg AFB will be used in my Astronomy and Meteorology this coming year, and the years to follow.

For more information on the Delta II rocket and OCO2 mission, you can visit the page below.

http://oco.jpl.nasa.gov/

In short, the OCO2 satellite will measure Carbon Dioxide levels in our atmosphere and we can get a better idea of what the human toll on climate change is.

Thank you again for all of your support!

YOU CAN CERTAINLY EXPECT ANOTHER VIDEO FOR THE START OF THE 2014 SCHOOL YEAR!!!

For the physical education equipment, have you looked into the Carol M. White Physical Education Program Grants. Our school district applied for this grant and received money to get new physical education equipment. The local Y was also able to benefit from this grant too.

a couple more sources you might not be considering (wish i could help financially) is boxtops4education are worth 10 cents CASH to the school--besides the pillsbury folks, but a whole list of others like ziplock. another one is cambell soups labels, and a whole string of other brands are in on this one, too,...check it out, and get your community on board to help, not just you folks, but all your other schools, too...HINT: don't send in your campbell's-stuff until you are done or almost done. otherwise, you have only 2 years to finish it,,if you don't make it, you lose all you have turned in...

You guys rock! I love your videos. Don't forget your school can collect Coke caps too for the Coke Rewards Program. They have sports equipment as prizes. Also, Donorschoose.org is another resource for you. Good luck as you start your new school year.
