Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our students come from a predominantly low-income neighborhood. Almost all of my students qualify for free or reduced lunch and many of their families live day to day. Fitness is not a huge priority in their lives and it is my goal to try to change that. My students are very outgoing and can be a very high energy bunch. With the right motivation, our students can start living a healthy lifestyle and begin their heart-healthy life by competing in volleyball against other school teams.
Our students love sports and needed an outlet. They inspired me to ask for volleyballs so my students will be able to practice their serves and sets and get ready for their match. Since sports teams are rare in schools, this project is crucial. These volleyballs will allow my students to practice and compete in the game they love.
Having students inspired in the classroom can only be achieved when they are also inspired outside of the class.
Many students came up to me asking about getting volleyballs so they can excel in sports. Competing against other district schools' volleyball teams allow our students to bond and gain confidence that can be carried into the classroom.
