Danny Green Films Anti-Bullying Skits with Team Up Challenge Students

Skits to be used in presentations to elementary and middle schools

San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green visited the PALS club at MacArhtur High School to help students film anti-bullying skits for their presentations to local elementary and middle schools in their district.

The students filmed three skits with Green, all focused on students using their voice, standing up to bullies or telling adult when they see bullying occur. The PALS group has presented to several middle and elementary schools, where they already mentor students, and plan to continue presentations throughout next semester.

Learn more about the semi-finalists and scholars at We are also excited to announce that financial literacy for the Team Up Challenge is being provided SACU.

For the second year, Spurs Sports & Entertainment is a part in the Big Brothers, Big Sisters InspireU workplace mentoring program. Currently 21 staff members are paired with eighth grade students from our neighboring Wheatley Middle School.

Healthy Hoopsters

Toros players and Capitol City Dancers visit classrooms to encourage healthy habits

Toros players and Capitol City Dancers visited Knowles Elementary School to host a Healthy Hoopsters pep rally for over 600 students. The pep rally focused on creating healthy habits like eating right, exercising daily and making good decisions.
