ECISD Launches NSP in 4 Elementary Schools!

Odessa, Texas – Murray Fly, G.E. Buddy West, Milam, and Blackshear Elementary will be the first four schools to implement The First Tee National School Program (NSP) at the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year. This expansion will impact approximately 2,000 students ages 7-11.

First Tee West Texas has been working diligently with private donors and organizations in order to bring a new, quality curriculum to ECISD elementary P.E. classes.

We’re very excited to be a Partner in Education with ECISD and want to thank our generous First Tee West Texas supporters along with ECISD Superintendent-Tom Crowe, and Michael Neiman-ECISD P.E. and Health Coordinator.

The First Tee National School Program provides physical educators with everything they need to get students started including teacher training, equipment, and the curriculum lesson plans.

During P.E. classes students will not only learn basic golf skills but they’ll receive introduction and reinforcement of The First Tee’s:

Nine Core Values: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy, and judgment

Nine Healthy Habits: play, energy, safety, mind, family, vision, friends, school, community

I’m a West Texas gal, wife, mother, grandmother, registered nurse, community volunteer, and golf enthusiast! I believe that introducing youth to the game of golf will empower them, and as a result, will make our communities stronger. I’m so grateful and excited to have the opportunity to be the Odessa Program Coordinator for The First Tee of West Texas where wonderful things are happening every day.
