My Students

The students of our Middle School were greatly impacted by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Many lost everything as their homes were destroyed by the flood. School was delayed almost three weeks from the original start date as the community began the recovery and rebuilding process. While things are still far from being back to normal, the school year is well under way and the kids have been eager to learn and embark in all the vast extra curricular activities our school has to offer.

My Project

Athletics are an important part of any adolescent experience – from learning new physical skills and sportsmanship to simply enjoying the thrill of activity and competition.

In our sports programs on top of the thrill of competing and having fun with friends, students experience benefits that support their academic, social, physical and emotional growth in middle school.

Our coaches, teachers and club leaders work together to ensure that student athletes are performing in their academics and extracurricular activities.

Athletics are a crucial part of many students' middle and high school experience, but only some schools have the means to provide proper equipment and training facilities necessary to run successful programs. We need new cleats for track and field competition that begins in February. With the proper training equipment our track program will thrive for years to come.
