This year Bulldog Scholars will be focused on social and emotional skills. Partnering with Leah Morales from America Scores, our girls have the opportunity to build their skills in soccer and poetry. Providing a safe space allows for girls to explore their creativity and freedom of expression as an individual through poetry in the classroom. Meanwhile on the field they receive encouragement, team building skills, also knowledge of fitness and nutrition, all while having fun with their classmates.
