Mr. Oszust from Bronx NY is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sweet Prince, Wherefore Art Thou?

My students need an assortment of Prince tennis rackets that fit their individual level and playing style.

Sports serve many purposes. They help build self-esteem and confidence; they foster cooperation and camaraderie; they motivate children to succeed in athletics and academics; they improve physical and mental health; they enrich one’s quality of life; they produce well-rounded, firmly grounded individuals; they often lead to college scholarships; they promote community involvement. My students come from one of the poorest congressional districts in the United States. They represent a multicuturally diverse urban population. The vast majority qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, and a large percentage is classified as "Special Needs" or "English Language Learners". My goal is to create a tennis team that is open to every student. By doing so, I hope to unite all of the students on campus through sports; to offer promising young athletes an opportunity to participate and learn through team-work and competition; to provide a safe and supportive environment to improve self esteem; and to provide a means for students to become more involved in school-wide activities that will promote success on and off the courts. In order to make my students competitive, they need tournament level equipment. Most of the students on campus cannot afford to make such purchases. With your help, however, we can give these students a chance to play tennis at a competitive level. And with a little luck, winning games now may lead to winning college scholarships later. The lessons they learn on the tennis court will serve them well as they pursue college and professional careers. Please help me to help those most in need. Help me get our promising young athlete on the road to success. Thank you!
