My Students

Our school is located in Gaffney SC, part a Title I school district. I have a diverse group of students with various educational needs. Our school strives to find the leader in all students. Every child has capabilities, talents, and strengths.

We strive for excellence at every level of our school.

We have excelled in athletics as well as academics. School spirit is at all-time participation. We continue to seek solutions to keep the students excited about the accomplishments of our school.

My Project

The necessary equipment will play an intricate part in the athletic department to assist in maximizing each participant's athletic potential. The needed equipment will expand and replace the inventory in our athletic department to give our student-athletes equal opportunity to excel in athletics and healthy life choices.

Our student-athletes take pride in preparing athletically to compete at a high level in athletic competition.

The students will use these training aids to develop the necessary fundamental skill sets required to be able to compete at a high level. These aids will encourage physical activity to promote strong minds and healthy lifestyles.
