My students need a soccer field with goals and equipment to help them develop their motor skills and social skills to keep them of the streets and in activities that will enhance their focus for learning.
We are a Title-1 school, in which 98% of our children are from low-income families, with over 90% of our students receiving free lunch. Our school is located in a low-income neighborhood in Dallas, and in order to be successful, our students need to develop their social skills and team work, in a safe stress-free environment.
As at-risk students, our children need all the support they can get to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards, while learning important life skills, such as teamwork, social skills, sportsmanship.
Character building and social skills are certainly major benefits to soccer participation, but let’s not forget that it’s also fun and a great way to make new friends!
The soccer goals, balls, and the rest of the equipment ordered are for low income children from different backgrounds to help them develop healthy long-lasting friendships and a support system for their education.
Soccer helps kids stay in school by developing long lasting relationships with teachers and peers; keeping them off the streets, helping them enhance their senses, their health, their focus, their concentration in a safe environment of teamwork, sportsmanship, and life-long lessons that can translate into the classroom to show effort and focus in their learning.
Please help me help this students become the role models of the future.
