Success with Funds

With Funds from this year and previous years, we have been ramping up our recess program. We converted an unused space behind our school to a green space. We were able to install a greenhouse and start a planting project for our students, we purchased stencils from FUTP 60 and used them to paint games and activities on the blacktop, and we also purchased shade elements and playground equipment. The space is being used as a safe place for our students to play, create, and socialize during the school day.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Above all, student behavior has improved as a result of this recess area. Our young students are getting some much-needed exercise and socialization during a demanding learning day.
