My Students

My students are 9th-12th grade student-athletes.

Most of our students are low income and do not always come to school with all of the necessities to be successful in school and athletics.

They are so hardworking and deserve the best learning and athletic environment possible. They are so lucky to have so many wonderful programs available to them and they take full advantage of all opportunities. One hundred percent of our students are accepted to college, and we want to prepare them for that challenge.

My Project

Donations to our project will help our team during practice and games. Our gym floor gets really dusty, which means it is slippery, and players fall fairly easily.

The traction mat will help our players remove dust, dirt, and debris from their shoe soles, providing necessary traction and maneuverability to maintain control during the game.

We will also be able to bring the traction mat with us to away games in case our opponent's floors are dusty, too! Based on the reviews, we found out that the scotch dobie sponges are the best at keeping the mat sticky!

We are also in need of a medkit dedicated to the basketball team.
