My Students

Our school is a family. Each staff member is an active stakeholder in our students' education. Our students are of high poverty and are English language learners. There is diversity in our school in which culture flourishes and children discover new traditions.

Our students are lifelong learners that will use new knowledge to inspire themselves and each other.

It is truly amazing to see ideas grow through classroom discussion and inquiry. All of our students are ready each day to learn together.

My Project

We want to continue an after school sports team that works on team sports, with a focus on basketball skills and basketball games. The students within our learning community need this equipment to support this team sport club after school. These seven basketballs will bring excitement to our basketball team. We are in desperate need of new balls. Our current equipment is lacking to support this new club. Having new equipment will encourage more participation within our club. Team building through sports helps build character, problem solving and friendship. As a coach of this sports team I know that team building through sports is a big piece in growing in school.
