My Students

Our student-athletes are ambitious, respectful and full of potential! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Our soccer team lacks many of the resources that are credible for practice and game play.

Over half of the students qualify for free or reduced lunch.

I feel my student-athletes learn best when they feel supported in their endeavors and have adequate equipment to compete. Many of our students are seeking to join after school programs and sports as an alternative to going home to an empty house while parents are at work.

My Project

Our boys and girls teams are lacking the appropriate equipment to help make practice successful. Most of our soccer balls are old with the leather coverings falling off. We are also seeking pop up goals to help our team since we share the field with the football team for daily practice.

Your donations will guarantee that every player has a soccer ball and a goal to shoot on during practice.

Our goal is to have the necessary equipment to make practices meaningful and to give our students an opportunity to form lifelong memories with other teammates. Athletics are also another link for students to stay in school and gain positive relationships.
