My Students

"Kids playing a sport should be about learning the game they're playing and have fun doing it." - John Tuozzo

At my school, we have an after-school program called ASES where many of our students ranging from kindergarten to 2nd grade are part of the ASES basketball team.

ASES provides students opportunities to play sports and be in a sports team free of charge. Since many students in our school are from a low economic background, high volumes of students participate in ASES's basketball team.

My Project

"Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game." -Michael Jordan

Your donation will help the ASES basketball team become more active which will promote a sense of teamwork which enhances social and emotional growth.

I am requesting new basketballs to replace the old torn balls so they can use it for practice and for the actual games. The wagon will help the coaches bring the team equipment out for daily practice.

These items will help promote a healthy lifestyle which will lead to better focus in the classroom and in their lives. Working together, practicing sports skills help decrease behaviors in the school and in the community. Our students' well-being and our school climate will be positively impacted with these requested items. Thank you in advance for supporting our basketball team at our school!
