ESS Wins Sports Equipment Grant!

Good News, ESS!

Thanks to the diligent work of Ms. Robinson, PE teacher, and incoming Development Chair Kristina Jeffers, ESS won an Equipment Grant from Good Sports. The mission of Good Sports is to give “all kids the lifelong benefits of sport and physical activity by providing equipment, apparel and footwear to those most in need.”

Ms. Robinson, in conjunction with the administration, will be able to choose equipment from the Good Sports catalog of sporting goods items. The items are mostly overstock items donated by large sporting goods manufacturers. So, ESS will be able to pick whatever we want for 2 years, and our only cost is 10% of shipping costs.

Thanks again to Ms. Robinson for the wonderful sections she composed about her passion for teaching physical education and to Kristina Jeffers for putting together the grant application.
