My Students

Students at Juniata Park Academy are hardworking and love to play sports! They play sports such as basketball and football and many others as well. They are kind to each other and try hard with their work. Teamwork is emphasized at our school and our students work together well as a team. If another student needs help they are quick to help that student out. Our students go to an inner city public school in Philadelphia. They deserve the very best!

My Project

After school we have several sports teams who compete in sports to get exercise, build teamwork, and make new friends! We recently received a new basketball hoop but we need some new basketballs so our amazing athletes can play the sport of basketball successfully! Most of our basketballs are worn out and not very effective to play with. We are also requesting a sports bag so our athletes have a place to store their basketballs. Basketball is extremely popular with our athletes and they love to play the sport after school. Please help our amazing athletes out! They would really appreciate it.
