Mrs. Valverde from Livermore CA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

School Wide Playground Equipment

My students need playground equipment to share with all of our 600+ students at our school.

  • $1,207 goal

This project expired on August 27, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

This is a request that would benefit our entire school. All 600 plus of our students deserve to have quality playground equipment. Our students love to be active and get out and play after learning in their classrooms. Having more playground equipment that could be used by TK-5th grade will benefit our school greatly.

Our students are thankful for the opportunity to have more equipment on our playgrounds.

This will help them with skills like sportsmanship, sharing, socializing and more. Thank you!

My Project

All playground balls will be shared with our entire 600+ student body. Each of our 25 Tk-5th grade classrooms will benefit from new balls in their classrooms. Students enjoy playing basketball, four square, kickball and more with their friends. Students will love the small and large Go Sports and TyTroy playground balls along with the Spalding basketballs.

Students will be able to share the new playground balls with their peers.

Students will be able to use a variety of playground tools while at recess, lunch or P.E. Classrooms will also benefit by having the playground balls right in their classrooms to use daily. Thank you Jamba Juice for assisting us with this funding!
