The wonderful partnership between Siefert Elementary and the Milwaukee Bucks has been a match made in heaven. The Bucks have encouraged the students at Siefert in many ways this school year. Through their participation in three different read-a-thons, our students have been delighted by Bango, inspired by the wonderful insights from Bucks legends Sidney Moncrief and Bob Dandridge, and thrilled to receive a Bucks paraphernalia and ticket incentives for regular attendance, good grades, and positive behavior. I look forward to our continued partnership.
I think I was as excited as the kids. We all know how kids look up to professional athletes, and I think the Bucks players had an impact on how the kids in our Playworks schools look at fitness and nutrition.
[Jabari Parker] is the consummate partner. Not only is he an ambassador for attendance and MPS, but he has his own personal story tied to it. To see a young man who is using his celebrity to help motivate, encourage and empower our young people. It's hard to put it in words, without getting emotional.
