Jamie McKinley’s 5th grade English as a Second Language (ESL) students were treated to a behind the scenes tour of FedEx Forum to see the Memphis Grizzlies’ home. This unique opportunity was afforded Grahamwood’s students thanks to our P.E. Instructor Andrew Martin’s community contacts.
“During the visit, our students saw how much goes into maintaining a giant arena and all the jobs that allow a franchise like the Grizzlies to function on a day to day basis,” said Martin. As a bonus, students were given Grizzlies gear as well as meeting and talking with Grizzlies personnel.
Principal Pete Johnson noted, “This fieldtrip is just another example of how our teachers constantly strive to provide our students one-of-a-kind experiential learning adventures.”
