Bridget Anderson from Will County Special Education Co-op requested funds to help buy equipment for a brand new PE program for special education students.  Bridget reported that she would use the money to buy yarn balls, balls, adapted equipment, etc. that would help this new program get started.

Mary Rizzo from Elm School requested funds for FitStep pedometers for her elementary students.  Mary reported that she researched pedometers and found that these would best help her students monitor their activity levels.  She would also purchase a Fit Reader that allows for downloading pedometer results onto a PC or MAC computer.

Brittney Klemenswicz from Wentworth Junior High requested funds to help purchase 30 Mac-T pedometers as well as 3 Omron BP-652 Blood Pressure monitors.  Brittney explained that these would be used not only for health information, but to integrate the data collected with math and science.

Gary Simonian and Cindie Cortinas from Stuart R. Paddock school requested funds to create a science and nutrition unit to use within their PE program. The funds would be used to purchase white boards, and misc. educational materials.
