My Students

With some of the toughest financial, social and familial backgrounds any of us have ever heard, our students with emotional disturbances, come to school every day looking for normalcy, and a place to build friendships while being a student first and then an athlete. Recently, our basketball athletes have received praise throughout our building as being the first ever team in our school to successfully play a game while visiting another school. Rather than letting my emotionally disturbed students get frustrated or disenchanted, we can come together and make a difference in their lives, while building team pride throughout our school building.

My Project

In every single high school across our country, student-athletes get to wear team apparel that states what athletic team they are on, and sometimes even their position. This is part of what it means to be a high school athlete. Unfortunately, my students, who have limited financial freedom, do not have the means to purchase their own basketball apparel. This limited financial spending power, linked with our tight school budgets does not provide these materials for our students. Together as a community we can rally around my student-athletes and provide them with something that is present in every single high school in our country. Every bit will help raise our school pride, as well as boost the unity among members of our basketball team! One of the things they lacked when they went to play this team, was athletic team apparel to wear before they left our building. As a member of the basketball team that is creating buzz throughout our building, our students asked if they can have basketball quarter zips and unfortunately this is not part of our school budget.
