Community Involvement,  Physical Activity Participation
With the help of fund raising (community) and requests submitted by teachers and students, our district is helping build Volleyball and Basketball courts in addition to our playground. Then kids are so excited, they watch the construction and cheer during recess these days.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

They sent petitions to the district.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Our school's PTO held an auction to raise funds.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

The district has limited funds. Many small schools in the School District of Washington are in rural areas and are older. We are hoping with Fuel Up to Play 60 funding we can also purchase indoor recess equipment through - "Imagination Playground"
