My Students

Students at NFCS are hardworking and love to play sports! They play advance! such as football and basketball and many others as well. They are kind to each other and try hard with their work. Teamwork is emphasized at our school and our students work together well as a team. If another student needs help they are quick to help that student out.

The students from our school are kind to each other and like to help their community as well.

We are a public K-8 school with over 1,200 students located in Philadelphia.

We are a Title I school.

Our students are bright and motivated, but unfortunately, they are students in a district that can't always afford to provide them with basic athletic equipment.

My Project

In a time of constant change, upgrading and advancing, the necessities in the end become more expensive. Having priorities and money set on school uniforms, books, and class supplies, the extras far as athletic footwear for extracurricular activities have to be placed on the back burner. As the same for the coach, being an instructor during school hours.

To make sure everybody has the proper footwear despite setbacks we are asking you to help us walk, run, and exercise on clouds.

By providing the athletic footwear provided on our wish list. We would like to thank you in advance!
