My high school math students are from one of the poorest counties in Alabama, but that does not stop them from dreaming big. They are passionate, energetic, and hilarious, and they keep me on my toes with their thoughts and questions.
To make their dreams a reality, we have a long way to go.
The list of opportunities we have to assist them on this journey is long, and many of their needs other schools may take for granted. Thankfully, this allows us to do a lot with a little.
Each day, my students are striving to adopt a growth mindset allowing them to stand up to the task of getting college and career ready in a few short years. With your help, these students with great opportunity can reach their potential.
Until this fall, our school has never had a cross country team. We are a small team with big goals. We have athletes ready to compete for births to the state meet and who will challenge for podium finishes all year.
With your help, we can provide them with cross country essentials that every team should have.
We are looking to put together a meet kit which will include a water cooler, tarp, and running appropriate snacks. We also will benefit from gear that will assist us with practice which includes cones for showing the course and stopwatches for timing.
The Runnin' Rams are excited to take their track legacy and bring it to the cross country course this fall with your help!
