My Students

We all work with great kids but what sets ours apart from others is the question. Our kids are passionate, they are driven, they are focused and they never give up. Some of our students come from less then favorable situations but they don't let that define them.

Our students put so much time into volunteering and helping others that it is time for us to step up and support them and show them that we care about their future!

Please help us to help them!

My Project

To help with the stresses of society today we have decided to start doing YOGA in addition to regular exercise at practice each week! Our kids work hard every day and are faced with many challenges. We would like to help reduce their stress! By reducing their stress we hope to help their focus in the classroom!

We recently purchased new gym equipment and these mats will allow us to add to our exercise program!

These Yoga mats will help keep our students from laying directly on the cold hard school floors! Wouldn't you rather lay on a YOGA mat then a cold hard floor!
