GaGa Ball Pit Frenzy at Mitchell!
Thanks to funds from the Fuel Up to Play 60 organization, General Mitchell Elementary was able to add a GaGa Ball Pit to its playground. Student activity levels have increased at recess due to the new addition to our playground.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are more active at recess and have another option for active play.

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

Initial challenges were to ensure that all students followed the rules and demonstrated fair play, honesty, and good sportsmanship. In the 2018-19 school year, students will develop a video to inform students and staff of the expectations for participants in the GaGa Ball pit.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

The GaGa Ball Pit will be a long term piece of equipment on our playground for years to come and will provide increased opportunities for students to be active before school, during recess, and after school.
