My students need recess materials such as hula hoops, jump ropes, soccer balls, and footballs.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our school went from 400 to 900 students over the summer due to the demand for a high-quality, college-preparatory school in our neighborhood. In our neighborhood in West Dallas, for many of our families, their student will be the first in their family to graduate high school, let alone college! The path to college and beyond begins in primary school in creating a lifelong love of learning. Many of my scholars are English language learners. The path to success starts with having fun while learning!
Our School is extremely large, we have over 900 elementary scholars. They all are not able to fit on the playground at the same time. We are only able to go outside two days a week.
During writing class I asked my scholars to brainstorm different ways to solve this problem.
They realized there were other grassy areas around the school that we could use, if we had materials to use outside. Recess equipment would solve this problem! They helped brainstorm materials that they would be able to use in these areas such as footballs, soccer balls, hula hoops, and jump ropes. Help make sure my scholars can play in the sunshine every day, not just a few days a week.
