My Students

I work at a school that does not get a lot of new things and is hard to fund some of our needs. The kids are amazing here and they do amazing with the stuff we have. We are a complex school and are a very culture school. The kids love supporting their school and love playing the sports we offer here. With this project, the kids will love what we are trying to do for them and it will make them feel special. It will give them a way to support their school and sports team.

My Project

These book bags will help the team out with their soccer equipment. It will help them when we travel to different schools. We are trying to look like a complete team with matching book bags. Right now all the kids have different book bags and it just doesn't look like a team. I think this will boost their confidence and they will be able to support their soccer team in the schools. I plan on putting our logo on the front of it and include their numbers to make it feel like their own. These bags will be used every year for our boys soccer team.
