Port Barre Recess Revamped
The students at Port Barre Elementary were not active during their recess time, since they only had a jungle gym to climb on. The teachers decided to purchase a deck box and supply various items such as playground balls, jump ropes, footballs, basketballs, and other items for the students. Many students are now active and moving during their recess times. This helps with less fidgeting and extended focus in the classroom.

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

This is an ongoing project. As items are lost or broken, they will be replaced with donations from different sources such as teachers, parents and other orgazinations. Students will be active using the items in their playground box on a daily basis throughout the entire school year.
