My Students

Located in the Auburn community, we are an urban high school dedicated to offering students a rigorous college preparatory education where our students demonstrate the intellectual skills, the cultural competence, the belief in self, and the engagement in community necessary for success in school, college, the workplace, and life.

With hard work, diligence, and determination, our students are molded to be great.

Our school is distinguished by its commitment to sustaining a robust community of learners, where educators work closely with students to support academic, social, and personal development.

My Project

There are many benefits gained from participating in team sports. Team participation can build self esteem, promote social interaction and help one gain a sense of responsibility.

Being involved in a team sport can also help you to attain personal fitness goals and maintain wellness.

The resources requested such as the GoGit Combat Rope, the Quarterback Target Net, and the Wilson Practice Football will have the Lions of Ellison ready to conquer the any field or court. All resources will be used to the benefit of the young men on the team. Encouraging them that anything worth having is surely worth working hard for. With the resources below, The Lions of Ellison will be able to perform at the peak of their athletic ability. The materials requested will help maintain the success of our players. My players should have the proper equipment to prepare for a successful season.
