One Trippy Project...

Help me give my students a way to safely store P.E. balls with Trigon Sports Procage 3-Tier 15-Ball Hd Ball Cart so that the balls may easily be accessed and stored on campus.

My Students

Our students are great kids who have made big errors in judgment. They are temporarily attending an alternative learning environment in order to stay on track with their studies and to get back to their home schools after having received a disciplinary consequence for a bad choice.

Most of our students have experienced trauma in some way, shape, or form.

That is why our faculty and staff are learning and implementing Trauma-Informed Care strategies to help them. We view these students as "diamonds in the rough". and we know that our students need lots of love, encouragement, and support in order to continue to grow social/emotionally and educationally.

My Project

Positive Pathways Transition Center is a unique school in that we presently have students in the same class learning virtually and some face-to-face at the same time. Some of the kids are coming in to the school while the rest are tuning in to instruction from home. Hours of sitting and trying to focus while worrying about Coronavirus and other negative current events weigh heavy on their minds.

The faculty and staff know that physical movement helps to boost mental health and we can use your help!

We have a P.E. court outside with basketball hoops and lines painted around the edges as a walking track. We have a few older balls but no way to store them safely. We are hopeful that you will team up with our school to help us to purchase a ball rack that rolls and some new basketballs for the kids to use during breaks.

We all know the old adage, "Cleanliness is next to Godliness" and "Safety First!" This nice ball rack will keep our students safe from "tripping" over loose balls while reinforcing that everything has a place and everything in its place (which is another valuable life lesson)!
