Mr. Longo needs PE Equipment!!

Hi friends and family!  I am so happy to share with everyone how I finally got a Physical Education teaching job at Jumoke Academy in Hartford Connecticut! I have the priviledge of teaching students from the range of Pre-K through 8th Grade! I have now been there for a little over a month! Becoming a PE teacher has been a dream of mine for a very long time. And while I am so excited to have landed this job, I am struggling a lot with the older and very used equipment that has been passed on to me in this postition. I lack a lot of items and materials that I know will benefit the PE program at my school. I was only given a 200$ budget to spend on equipment for the school year. Unfortunately, 200$ won’t get me very far with how expensive Physical Education equipment is. I have reached out to S&S Worldwide (PE Equipment distributor) and found an awesome representative that has heard my situation and is putting together an amazing bundle package with all sorts of equipment at a great rate. Such as, gymnastic mats, hula hoops, cones, polyspots, jump ropes, scooters and all different types of balls (soccer, whiffle, foam, etc.) and more. 

Most of you who know me, know how much I love sports, games, and being active.  It is a passion of mine to be able to pass my knowledge and help educate my students to live a healthy and active lifestyle. I am asking for 1300$ because I will add the other 200$ my school has given me to spend. And with the 1500$ total, I know that I can get the equipment I need to begin to build an outstanding Physical Education Program that I know that these students need and deserve. If you are able to help out in any way, even if it's just a couple of dollars, you have no idea how much I would appreciate it, but more importantly my students will appreciate and gain from it! Thank you everyone for the support!!!

Anthony Longo
