My Students

Our close-knit Title I school is located in a beautiful country setting. The students are energetic, curious and work hard. The parents are positive and the community is a great resource of support.

The students come to school each day to learn so that they can be positive and helping participants in society.

The students work together to support one another both in the school and outside of the school day. Whenever a need arises in the community, our students are always there to lend a helping hand. Therefore, when we can help to pay it forward to the students, we jump at the opportunity.

My Project

Our team is a 7th grade girls modified volleyball team. We are just starting out our first year in competitive sports. Every girl is learning how to work together and play as a team. On a modified team the girls are learning the basic skills to play against other teams. Each day we have practice the girls need to bring their practice clothes and water to keep them hydrated. The cinch bags will give the girls a way to keep all their volleyball practice items together, so they will be ready for practice each day. The water bottles will be given to each of the girls to bring to practice each day, so they can stay hydrated and have drinks in the gym. When the girls have water readily available it helps to keep practice moving. The more practice we can get in, the better we will be on the court for game day.
