My Students

My students are very high energy kids. They are always eager to learn new games and activities. Many of them cannot afford new things such as shoes or new sports equipment. Also 52% of our students are receiving free or reduced-price lunch. My school serves about 450 students and is a very tight-knit school, since we are a small community of about 4,000 people. We take pride in our school and strive to keep improving so that our students may benefit.

My Project

These Zume Badminton sets are such a useful tool for my students. They can be used to help my students not only learn badminton but to help them with volleyball skills as well. (small nets for my K-2 students).

They are also very light and quick to set up which helps in my classroom when things need to be moved quickly and put away quickly.

My students can also use the equipment for different striking activities such as pickleball, tennis, and speedminton. These Zume sets will help them develop the skills they need to be successful in these games as well as other activities such as hockey, baseball, and softball.
