The majority of the 8th graders I teach are students of color from low income backgrounds and are All expected to achieve at a high level. Our scholars receive a rigorous academic education to prepare them for high school, college and beyond and they do not disappoint in their academic achievements. They are our future leaders in the community and the world. I am privileged to work with the scholars that are enrolled in our school and get excited to come to work every day.
Basketball is a very popular sport at our school. The 10 boys and 10 girls basketballs we are asking for would help us to get both female and males students excited to play the sport. Not only would we be able to maximize our time teaching basketball skills with more basketballs per class but we would more importantly, have the opportunity to develop favorable lifelong habits and attitudes towards fitness and healthy living through the sport of basketball.
Scholars would also learn to apply the same principles of dedication, persistence, and patience they learn through basketball to the school environment.
