Pickleball Champs

Help me give my students the necessary supplies for an afterschool Pickleball league.

My Students

Our rural, remote, Title I school is very unique. We have students from different backgrounds, cultures, religions, and races. Some students are learning English for the very first time. Some students are very talented when it comes to learning, some require special education, and some students are working their hardest to give their best. Each morning, students greet us and each other with high-fives and hugs. We are truly blessed by the relationships that are built within our tiny community. Our students are the builders of tomorrow: the teachers, scientists, farmers, mothers, fathers, doctors, engineers, dreamers, and doers.

Seeing students engaged and deeply involved in their own education is a great joy to me.

I strive to provide hands-on learning experiences in a safe environment, where students are free to explore, make real-world connections, and see their knowledge grow and expand! Knowing that failing is a step towards success relieves our students from being fearful to try, and great things happen because of their growth mindset!

My Project

Due to our rural area, our school often lacks the extracurricular activities that bigger communities offer. We do our best to engage our students in afterschool activities that they want to participate in and that is where this project comes in!

Students have spoken up and said, "We want an after school Pickleball league!" In this project, we are asking for the necessary equipment to start a Pickleball league.

These items include two Portable Pickleball Net Systems that can be easily put up and taken down, HAIXING Pickleball Balls for indoor and outdoor use, Pickleball paddles and Franklin Sports Pickleball Court Marker Kits to mark our courts. This team sport is engaging and fun for students of all ages and will be open to grades 4-12 to participate in. Please help us become "Pickleball Champs!"
