Teamwork Makes the Dream Work!

My Students

"WORK HARD! PLAY HARD!" This is the motto our students live by!

Despite so many hardships, our students are still eager to come to school to learn and do their very best.

Because of the high poverty in our area, 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch at school. They work hard in the classrooms, and play hard on the field during recess and P.E.!

When an opportunity presents itself like joining the choir, entering a talent show or competing in sports contests nearly every student signs up. They strive to "belong" and are motivated to "give it their all"!

My Project

My students need colored sports pinnies for Physical Education class so they can easily differentiate their teammates from their opponents!

Not only are team sports and games good for fun and fitness in Physical Education, but they also serve to boost morale and build character as every child on a team works together to achieve the same goal.

Everyone wants to be part of a team! Having students wear sports pinnies will help them to identify as team players, and it will give each child a sense of belonging.

Whether they're worn for basketball, soccer, football, flickerball, bucketball, or whatever the game may be these colored sports pinnies will definitely be put to good use!
