Our little elementary school sits on the corner of the entrance into our rural farming community in southeast Missouri.
The sweet faces of our precious students reflect a desire to learn and excel in life.
Many of our families live below the poverty level, and our students find the promise of success and hope as they enter the campus each morning. Our buildings are full of adults and children eager to work together to make our community and our world a better and brighter place!
As cold winter days in Missouri give way to sunshine and warm breezes, our little students will spend more time on the playground, much to their delight.
Hoops, balls, and chalk will bring many smiles and much joy to little faces!
These additional playground resources will greatly enhance the time spent recharging and renewing our students' minds and bodies.
The daisy chalkboards and chalk will allow them to be creative through drawing and coloring. The hoops will provide an opportunity for movement and cooperative activities. The playground balls are a perfect fit for our existing basketball goals and ball toss and will be a great replacement for the balls that have grown worn and torn.
Your donation to this project will provide fun and exciting equipment for the highlight of our students' days, playing outside with their friends and creating school memories that can last a lifetime.
