|It's all about focus for Chesnut fifth Grader, Madi Hummel, |
as she practices what she's learning in Chesnut's National Archery in the Schools Program
Motivation, self-discipline, focus and confidence are just some of the attributes that are built by the sport of archery. Thanks to a grant from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, along with funding from Friends of Chesnut (Chesnut Elementary's nonprofit foundation), the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) is now part of the physical education curriculum at Chesnut Elementary. The three-to-four-week unit of study for Chesnut's fourth and fifth graders is provided under the instruction and guidance of two faculty members who were trained and certified to be NASP instructors with a focus on safety, technique and positive coaching.
