My Students

Our school serves over 800 students in grades K-8 who come from a high poverty/ low-income neighborhood, and one of the most historic in the city. One hundred percent of the student population qualifies for free or reduced lunch. Our staff consists of teachers who are dedicated to instilling our motto of "Si se puede" (Yes, we can) in all students.

Softball is a sport which began five years ago, with the dedication of a fifth grade teacher who wanted to provide opportunities for student-athletes.

Our students do not have many opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities and there is a small budget to fund sports. We enjoy hearing from former students who have made varsity teams in high school and into college. In addition, we know students build confidence in team sports and work cooperatively with others through team sports.

We are proud to offer team sports to fifth through eighth grades after school.

My Project

Our sports teams are made up of dedicated teachers who volunteer more than just their time after school to coach sports like softball. These teachers also worked to get the basic materials needed for practices, such as balls, gloves, and bats when creating team sports five years ago.

The materials in this project will replace the gloves the softball team currently uses, which were donated because friends and family members of our coaches wanted to help provide students with opportunities to participate in team sports.

We make it work with the resources we have and what we have been able to gather, but after time the equipment gets worn out due to normal wear and tear. Due to a limited budget for after-school sports activities, it is difficult to buy new gloves for a team all at once. This project allows students to use new equipment, which offers less wear and tear on the old equipment. With these gloves, we will have enough for the entire team.
