A New Pickleball Team

Help me give my students an opportunity to learn a new TEAM sport during our Patriot Time, where if they have their grades up and do not need to make up any assignments or tests, it's a reward.

My Students

More than one-third of our students are from low-income households.

Our school was built in 1973 and is a mix of low-income and middle-class communities.

Some of our students have very challenging living environments. Some of our students have stable family homes. The beauty of our school is that we all come together. We support one another, help each other and are here for each other. We have several systems in place to promote a school family environment. We have rules and hold to the rules consistently, individually and collectively. I want to encourage my students to love to read! We have had several reading incentive programs through the library and school.

My Project

Donations to this project will have an ongoing impact on our students because the supplies will last quite a few school years. The use of this project is of benefit to students as it gets them outside and is a reward. During our Patriot Time, students who have to get their grades up to go to study hall. Students who have to make up an assignment or test go to concept mastery. Students who have good grades and have been responsible for the completion of their assignments get to choose a stretch to go to. Pickleball will be one such stretch opportunity. Sports that are easily played throughout one's life and don't require expensive equipment or require a lot of set up can greatly enhance one's life.
