Get Moving, Koalas!

Project GoalThe goal of this project is to enhance the school environment by providing additional engaging movement activities for our students. Currently, our playgrounds have some activities for the students, but not enough to engage our entire student population. As a result, we sometimes see behavior escalation during unstructured times, like recess and lunch. We will maintain and sustain this project by securing any donated items daily, and by teaching our students to respect and appreciate the changes that result from this project. We want our students to take pride and ownership in our school and further develop our climate of community.
