    In November of 2018, Nipsey Hussle teamed up with Puma to refurbish our basketball courts. His kindness to our school community has filter into the world and has opened many opportunities for our school. We are grateful for our part in his legacy and look forward to spreading his message of giving back to our community and helping others in need.
