Our students at AES love the idea of being active. We have a simple philosophy in our physical education program: Healthy bodies, healthy minds. Our students have become one of the strongest running programs not only in the state of Florida, but also in the nation. Out of nearly 500 schools involved in the New Balance Billion Mile Race, AES placed 4th overall in the state of Florida, and 31st nationwide. To put it simply: At AES, we love to move.
As a part of our physical education program, we believe that healthy bodies lead to healthy minds. Our school has excelled at running, placing in the top 5 in the state and top 40 in the country. We now want to introduce basketball as a way to help students keep themselves active.
Our students need new equipment for this project.
The basketballs currently in our inventory are nearly 8 years old, and many of them are unable to keep air. By replenishing our basketball supply, we will be able to help our students have a greater enjoyment for the game, and another physical activity to keep them moving and excited.
