Mrs. Giardini from Ypsilanti MI is requesting classroom basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Run, Jump, and Play

Help me give my students recess equipment so that they are able to have more choices to participate in games and activities on the playground.

My Students

My students show up to school each day excited to be back in the classroom. They are active participants who are kind to one another and bring a variety of backgrounds to our learning space. It is such a joy seeing them engage with our learning and watching their eyes light up with smiles behind their masks.

Our school community is a strong one with 75% of students qualifying for free lunch.

The staff and families are dedicated to providing the best educational opportunities for our students. They are so deserving of our support!

My Project

My students currently have limited access to recess equipment while on the playground. I have some wonderfully enthusiastic children who would love the opportunity to play football, soccer, and frisbee, jump rope, or draw with chalk.

With more options for team sports and play, my students will gain the physical and mental capacity to focus better in the classroom.

This time is just as vital as reading as recess is built in to give exercise and socialization. Please help my give them more variety to enjoy this special time with friends.
