My Students

The school is located in the inner city and is a diverse, multicultural community. We are a true community school that contains very bright, intelligent, and athletic students. Students enjoy physical education class one to two days a week, and many participate in numerous after-school sports like golf, basketball, and track. Many students participate in more than one sport throughout the school year.

Many students have emotional and learning disabilities and use physical education and athletics to improve their self esteem.

Any contribution you can make will help my students get active. They will also be able to achieve more throughout the school year inside and outside of the classroom.

My Project

All children enjoy learning and playing badminton, tennis, and volleyball. These volleyballs and badminton rackets will help my students and players achieve their goals on the volleyball and badminton court. The equipment will help both boys and girls get physically active during and after school. The students' self esteem will improve, as well as their ability to focus inside the classroom.

Many students need sports like volleyball and badminton to help them focus in the classroom.

Some students need athletics to get them to school and help them forget about difficulties surrounding other parts of their lives. The students take pride in their athletic teams and look forward to participating every school year. Thanks for your help!
