An after school program that would include basketball, cheer, and dance seems to me like  a great opportunity to be active, be part of a team, and also continue to stay focused in school. The children can choose what they are mostly interested in and they will have a variety of different activities to learn. Us, being high school students and still at a young age would also probably make it attractive and not so scary to attend our planned activities. Due to our very busy schedule, as a group, and in the middle of basketball season myself, with many practices after school and late games, it has been very hard for all of us to physically go to the elementary schools and meet with the teachers. We decided to e-mail the schools and try to reach out to them through letters, even though this of course makes it less personable. We are eagerly waiting for answers!
