My name is Joe Hess and I'm in my 11th year teaching Physical Education. My colleague is Ty Fogarty, who has been teaching for seven years. Together, we have built and maintained a healthy Physical Education environment where students are engaged throughout the entire time during PE class. One way to do this, is continuing to educate our students how to stay active and keep the heart rate up.

Currently, we have 12 heart rate monitors that allow students to visually see their heart rate as they move throughout the gym performing a variety of skills and movements. Unfortunately, we can only have a portion of our class wearing these at a time. We are asking for an additional 24 wristband monitors to allow every child to be a part of our daily challenges. We have seen an improvement in those students who normally aren't as engaged simply because of the heart rate monitor feedback. These students are able to use their own personal information to create healthy heart rate target zones and try to stay in those zones for the entire PE class period. 

The following is our PE equipment distributor website with the product and information:

A set of 24 is $2,649.

Thank you for your support!
