My Students

We are in the beginning stages of starting a volleyball team at our school and while the excitement is there, the supplies...not quite there yet. Our team will run the gamut from experienced to new. We want to give them all a great experience in their first year.

My Project

We are in the process of building a volleyball program at our school. We are excited for this opportunity as are the girls who are preparing to try out in June. Building a program takes resources. Balls, nets, carriers and the like won't come easy but they will with your help! Help us make school history. Our players will run the gamut of experiences to new and these materials will help us get better. While we are not a Title I school, we are in a Title I district and some may qualify for free/reduced lunch. Help us spike our goals!!
