My middle school is located in the foothills of North Carolina serving 520 students in grades 6, 7, and 8. This area like most was hit hard by the recession. Many manufacturing companies closed their doors and people moved away to find work. In turn, county and state school funding has been cut multiple times in the last ten years.
My students are energetic and look forward to PE class!
They love to play games, especially with their friends. It is a time for them to be active, develop social skills as well as an interest in life-time sports. We provide PE for every student throughout the school year.
Western North Carolina is a beautiful place to work and play as our school system ranks 14th on the list of best school districts in North Carolina!
A portable net system will get a lot of use in our PE classes. It can be used for many different lead-up games and individual sports throughout the school year.
We will use the portable net system to develop students' skills and interest in racket sports including badminton, pickle ball and tennis.
The community recreation department provides tennis courts and indoor pickle ball. Our goal is to introduce students to lifetime sports.
The net system is lightweight and can be set up in less than a minute! The net height can be adjusted from 36, 61 and 71 inches. The length of this net system is also adjustable from 10 to 20 feet which helps to accommodate more students.
