My students need more equipment to keep them engaged on our playground. I really believe the rock climbing 'gym' will be a great addition to the playground and help promote gross motor skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
We have a great group that is eager to learn. We have a diverse population of abilities but every child in our kindergarten classes have the desire and the drive to achieve success. The kids this year are some of the sweetest and hardest working students we've been fortunate to have.
Our kindergarten group this year are coming from all walks of life to start their education journey with us.
Some students have not had active lifestyles before coming to our school while others have had many opportunities to explore their athleticism and balance.
I believe these new items will add to our existing playground by bringing a new dimension to play. The kids are often asking if we have other items to help them play. I'd like to see them get active playing flag football which I know they thoroughly enjoy during P.E. and have asked if we have the flag belts but we don't. I know they love the few trucks we have now and have asked for more so they would really enjoy having more trucks to push around and have races with.
The kinder kids have two 30 minute breaks during the day for which they play outside.
We'd like to add to the outside play experience by adding new equipment to our playground. Our goal is to keep kids playing during their two 30 minute breaks with exciting additions like the sandbox crane and the rock climbing mountain. When students want to stay outside to continue their play and exercise, we know we've got them excited about staying active.
