My Students

Our school is located right off the bay of Lake Huron. We are a Title I, rural, public school. The students have grown up together and treat each other like family. Our students are some of the brightest, funnies, and most intelligent students that you will ever met. And this doesn't even include the amazing staff. We really are like one, big, happy family.

Physical activity is so important in keeping our youth healthy.

The goal of our physical education team is to create an environment where our students can be lifelong, active learners. Our students are just as passionate and desire to have new and updated activities for Physical Education class. Our students want an environment where they can continue to grow as children and learn as many new skills as they can.

My Project

Our students are tired of the same old, same old. We are looking at ramping up our equipment to help provide our students with new and exciting sports that they can play. With these tennis racquets not only can we play tennis, we can also play a game invented in Michigan, called Eclipse Ball. Allowing our students to receive this equipment will further their developmental skills. It will also allow our students to be educated in one of the sports that is considered a low impact, lifelong sport.

By donating to this project, you will be providing our students with a new sport and you will be an encouragement in their adventure towards lifelong physical fitness.
