Athletic Memories

My students need picture frames so they can mount their team pictures in the athletic hallway at our school. It is a gift the 8th graders leave for the school each year.

My Students

Our coaching staff's goal is to ensure that our student-athletes are progressing both on the field and in the classroom. That means better grades, learning more about the sports they played and getting physically stronger. Our biggest challenge comes in the classroom. A lot of our students are ELL.

We have a great group of kids that give full effort each day on the field and on the court.

Our goal is to teach them to have that same work ethic in the classroom as well. We have students who struggle academically mainly because they English Language Learners. They make great gains each year, but for some students, it's not enough. We believe that developing that strong work ethic on the field will help them to have better work habits in the classroom.

My Project

Students will use the frames to hang team pictures in the athletic hallway at our school. This is a tradition at our school for our eighth graders. Unfortunately, our department lacked the funds for the frames, so donorschoose.org could not have been introduced to me at a better time. With the donation of the frames, this years eighth graders can keep the tradition going.

We have a very community based school.

Meaning a lot of our students have siblings and other relatives that attend the school. Being able to see relatives that were apart of the program encourages our students to participate in sports to keep the family tradition going.
