Ms. DiCienzo from Fruitland Pk FL is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Can You Score Me Some Fun 2

My students need a basketball hoop to get some exercise during recess. The extra balls will allow more players to play at the same time.

My Students

As you can see from the photograph, our bus loop is where our 3rd through 5th graders have their recess. We would love for them to play basketball and have balls they can use to shoot some hoops.

Our students work hard and basketball hoops and balls would be so appreciated by the kids.

Please help us bring fun, excitement and exercise into our recess time. We can't choose where they have recess, but we can help them enjoy it. They work so hard and deserve it!

My Project

Our 3rd through 5th grade students are in need of recess equipment. Our recess is played on our bus loop and we have no playground equipment. The new basketball hoop and basketballs would be a welcomed addition to their recess time. This will help promote teamwork and staying healthy.

Recess is a time for fun and release from working hard in class, and having activities to release their stress would be wonderful.

I look forward to seeing them shooting hoops together and having fun. Teamwork, exercise and getting healthy would be promoted through playing sports during school. Please help us make that a reality and put some smiles on our students' faces. Thank you.
