Alexander Elementary School- British Columbia, Abbotsford
Alexander Elementary School is located in downtown core of the Abbotsford BC community. The school has 156 students, many who come from families with low socioeconomic status. Due to limited financial means many of the children who attend Alexander cannot get involved in community sports. The Active Kids Club will provide students the opportunity to participate in organized sports at recess two days a week. The program will also bring in professionals throughout the year to teach students new skills such as yoga, rollerblading and gymnastics. This will ultimately encourage students to live an active lifestyle and help them build great life skills such as sportsmanship.
