My Students

My school is comprised of Special Education students, from an inner-city school, in New York. The purpose of our school is to teach our students the skills that are required in order to obtain and maintain a job. Our staff works around student's disabilities to train them for employment.

In addition to vocational training, our school offers clubs and athletic teams for our students to take part in.

All of our clubs and teams focus on student abilities, not disabilities.

My Project

A snowboard from Brooklyn? Every year our team, The Skiing Knights travel to the Adaptive Sports Foundation to take part in adaptive ski races. While we don't have a mountain in our backyard, our students train for their races all year. Our Adaptive Physical Education staff works tirelessly to strengthen our student's leg muscles and stamina to get ready for the big day. When we hop on the bus for the three-hour trip to the Catskills, the students are excited, prepared, and nervous all at once. It's an amazing site to see, watching our students work hard to get down the hill. Right now we don't have a bus for the big day. We are requesting funding for a bus so our ski team can get to the mountain and put their hard work to use. Our snowboard team needs a bus to get to the races.
