My Students

My athletes are very excited to learn how to play basketball and volleyball! Our school is one of the most diverse schools in the area. We have a high number of English Language Learners at our school. We are lucky that our district offers athletics for 4th and 5th graders. My athletes have so much pride being on the team. We do not all have the same access to the equipment needed to play. I do however ensure that Everyone gets an equal amount of playing time on the court.

The athletes not only learn how to play sports but how to work as a team and lift each other up with our words of encouragement.

Being on the team motivates the students to do well academically as well. Their behaviors and grades improve in the classroom.

My Project

My athletes love learning how to play sports. They love working together with their teammates and playing the game. The ball cart will help them be able to work more on skills because they will not have to chase the balls around.

My students can not afford kneepads.

I would love to be able to provide kneepads for the players on the court. Many do not come with water to practice or games. I would love to have water bottles that can be filled and taken to practice and games. Having a bag to transport balls to and from games would help us keep track of the athletic balls.
