The Sky's The Limit: Pole Vault

My students need a place to keep their pole vault poles so they can be transported during practice and meets.

My Students

Our Middle School and High School track team represents Burlington, a small town of 300 people in Big Horn County, Wyoming.

Burlington Middle and High School students are good, ambitious, and motivated kids that love to set goals and work hard to reach them.

One great way they show this is in our Track and Field Program.

They are excited to explore their potential, to learn about the technique of performing track events correctly, and to expand their capacity for being the best they can be. They take pride in their efforts and are willing to challenge themselves for the sake of self-improvement.

My Project

Having the place to store our pole vault poles will allow us to transport our poles quickly and easily to practice and our meets. This will keep our collection of poles in good shape for future students to use. Our track athletes will be able to organize their equipment in a way that they will be able to find what size and type of pole easily. On bus trips, we won't be needing to step over an unorganized pile of poles. Rather, the bag will be able to be stored quickly and easily under or on top of the bus. We will be able to ensure that the poles that we borrow from other schools will be maintained and returned the same way we received them.
