Academic Championship Belt
Organized by: Michael Amorose
"Practice does not make perfect, practice makes permanent." "Think about the opportunity and not the obligation." These are just some of the things that I tell my 4th grade class everyday. You see I am a 4th grade teacher motivating, inspiring, and driving my students to not only believe in themselves in the classroom, but to be champions in life. Last year I started buying WWE championship belts and decorating them to fit the theme of my school which is the Oakcliff Eagles. I have an academic belt, behavior belt, and a writng belt. As I started rewarding students each week with these belts I noticed not only how hard they were working for the chance to be the champion for the week, but the excitement that they showed when they would receive the belts. They would walk to specials, lunch and to the school bus with them on or over their shoulder. The pride that these students showed was incredible. Over time these belts started to break down and I would have to replace and redesign them. I am raising money for this reason to get the real belts made. I have found a company in Pennsylvania that can make these real belts and design them for academics and behavior. It takes a village to raise childern not only at home but at school as well. Let us all be generation changers and help change students lives even if it is for a week with these real belts that they can be proud to wear. THANK YOU so much for your support.
