Hooray! This project is fully funded
The school I work for is a Title I school and ALL students receive free lunch. My students come from a predominantly low-income community/neighborhood. 80% of our students are English Language Learners and are from migrant families.
My students are kind, caring, hardworking, and inspiring young people.
They are excited to learn and reach their fullest potential. My students face many hardships and the majority of them take leadership roles in their homes by caring for their younger siblings while parents are at work. Nevertheless, they are eager and full of potential.
This will support our 5th/6th-grade basketball student-athletes who will be participating in our school's basketball team. We need appropriate basketballs to use in the blacktop where practice takes place.
Having enough basketballs will give student-athletes the opportunity to "practice to make a difference".
This will help them develop their dribbling, shooting, and essential basketball skills.
Basketball is one of the highest interest sport for our students. Being part of the basketball team does not only help them develop the necessary sports skills but it also helps maintain a good standing academically.
Unfortunately, for many of our students, this is their only opportunity to be part of a basketball team because it is free of charge. For that reason, I want to make sure that they have the necessary equipment to fully enjoy being on a team and develop the necessary skills.
