My Students

Our school is very successful in preparing students for college and success in life.

Yet, the achievements of our students are not limited to the classroom.

Indeed, they excel in sports.

Our school has fielded numerous state championship athletic teams, and the school is frequently a contender for the Ford Cup, an award given to the best athletic program in the state of Louisiana.

We have twenty competitive sports teams including soccer, football, cross-country, golf, volleyball, tennis, swimming, basketball, softball, baseball and indoor/outdoor track and field.

My Project

Volleyball is one of the top sports for girls (48) offered at our school and we have many participants. We also have an intramural volleyball program that runs during lunch; we have a boys volleyball club team (14) that plays other schools around the city.

The two teams require quite an extensive number of volleyballs!

Unfortunately, we've always had inexpensive volleyballs that get easily damaged and have to be replaced frequently. This time, we'd like to get five high-quality volleyballs with our school colors (green and white) that will last much longer and will help us win our competitions. We appreciate very much your consideration of our project!
