GREENSBORO, N.C. - The Atlantic Coast Conference enters its seventh year of the "ACC Community School Program", which will culminate by allowing an expected record of 15,000 enthusiastic students--representing over 18 county schools districts--to attend the 2010 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 ACC Women's Tournament. The Thursday, March 4th opening round game at 11:00 a.m. is designated as the Elementary School Day Game, and will welcome approximately 7,800 elementary students, nearly 2,000 more than last year. Guilford County will be bringing 33 elementary schools of the 65 in the district. The Friday, March 5th 11:00 a.m. game is designated as the Middle School Day Game, and will expect 7.200 middle school students to participate.
