Our grant money allowed Thomson students to add more activities at recess and after school. More balls allowed more students to get involved in activities at recess.

How did you accomplish your goals?

After our first purchase, which was an assortment of balls. We inflated the volleyballs and several others. We headed straight for the volleyball court and football fields. We have been playing different games and teachers are joining in on the fun.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We are seeing more children get involved in team sports because more balls are available. We have been able to start a "check out a ball" system that enables students to check out a ball overnight.
