Thanks to a generous partnership with Net Generation, all K-5 students at Boone Park Elementary completed a 6 week introduction to tennis. For many students this was their first time holding a racquet, and by the end of the unit, 4th and 5th grade students were rallying across the net! They also studied tennis professionals such as Arthur Ashe and Serena Williams, and participated in a Q&A Skype session with a local tennis professional. It was a such a success in our Physical Education program, Coach McColey agreed to offer after-school tennis clinics for interested students in Spring 2019. Thank you, Net Generation for investing in our students!
Boone Park families, come up to the school today for free hot dogs, water, and cookies. Hope to see you here.
