My Students

At Emerson Middle School, our students play hard. With our updated facilities, they need the equipment to help them develop their skills.

Our sports academy and P.E.

middle school students come from all backgrounds from all over our diverse city. They love to play and they play hard. Some of our students come from means, but others don't have access to facilities or equipment unless they are at school.

My Project

Students will use these 20 basketballs before school, when they love to shoot around, during AT time, Nutrition, and Lunch when they play pick-up games, during P.E. basketball units, and during basketball team practices. There is always a game to be played at Emerson and our students check out equipment for the gym and outdoor courts all day long.

With plenty of access to basketballs, students can start games and develop their skills before and after school as well as throughout the school day.

Emerson students play hard and these basketballs will help them play harder!
