ACC Enters Sixth Year of ACC Community School Day Program
Feb. 10, 2009
GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Atlantic Coast Conference enters its sixth year of the “ACC Community School Program”, which will culminate by allowing more than 13,000 enthusiastic students--representing over 40 Guilford County schools and 11 surrounding counties--to attend the 2009 ACC Women's Basketball Tournament at the Greensboro Coliseum.
This educational partnership was created and developed in 2004 and now includes a broad based elementary and middle school curriculum guide. The curriculum and lesson plans relate to ACC women’s basketball and are available to teachers in physical education, science, social studies, math, language arts, and character development. Approved lesson plans are posted on www.learnnc.org.
Capping off the year-long program, students and teachers have the opportunity to attend the Women’s Tournament. The March 5th opening round game at 11:00 a.m. is designated as the Elementary School Day Game and the March 6th 11:00 a.m. game is designated as the Middle School Day Game.
