Lincoln Trail Elementary unpacks new P.E. equipment | Education

Thanks to fundraising through SHAPE America’s health.moves.minds. program, several Lincoln Trail Elementary School students Friday got to unwrap a variety of new physical education equipment.

“I think it’s really cool,” said Morgan Eades, a second grader. “When people opened the basketballs, I was really excited because I used to play basketball. It was my favorite sport.”

In addition to basketballs, the school also received tennis balls, yarn balls, training volleyballs, bean bags and hockey sticks that are more conducive to the gym floor.

The equipment they purchased with the $2,200 granted in the form of a gift card was based on inventory and looking at their needs, physical education teacher Chad Sweeney said.

According to Sweeney, the fundraising they did was tied to the program health.moves.minds., which is part of SHAPE America — the national governing body for physical education and health. The state body is KY SHAPE.
