We are a Title I school, most of our scholars come from disadvantaged families and have special needs. We are a school with minimum resources, and our scholars work hard each and every day to achieve success. My students are one of a kind. I wouldn't even say that, they are extraordinary! They love coming to my class and I love seeing their happy smiles as well. Teaching my students about living a healthy lifestyle through fitness and health is very important. I truly believe it also helps students academically in the classroom.
We have a great opportunity to expose our youth to some great basketball training provided by former basketball players and coaches. Our basketball club and team need registration fees paid to attend ELW basketball clinics and camps throughout the school year.
Not only will our kids learn from some of the best, but they will also meet young people who will encourage them to work hard on and off the court.
The funds will be used to make sure no child is turned away. This will be an awesome experience for my team and a new experience for those wanting to play basketball for our school.
