My Students

This is the girls' volleyball program of RHS. Before I started with this program they were 0-16. Two years ago we finished 11-14. Last year we finished 20-8, ranked 30th in the Chicago Public school league, and was one game away from winning conference. DonorsChoose has been a tremendous help to the transformation of this program. We want to continue to build and hopefully become one of the better programs in the city of Chicago. Thank you very much to all the donors that continue to support us.

My Project

We are embarking on another amazing season of Girls Volleyball at Chicago RHS. We are raising funds for knee pads, volleyball shorts, ball bags, and training equipment. We need knee pads to help our girls stay safe from injury during practice and games. We need shorts for games and practices as well. We need ball bags for storage and to help transport our volleyballs to and from games. We need this particular training equipment to help our girls become a better serving team. We also need the training equipment to help our girls with their hand and eye coordination. Please continue to support these wonderful young girls.
