Outdoor play, dance and yoga are among the most highly rated student activities! Active play is critically important to the long term health and development of children. It promotes cognitive and social, emotional learning as well as physical growth. Help our students stay active with your donations!
Everyone’s favorite outdoor play seems to involve some sort of ball – four square, volleyball, soccer, basketball, tennis, etc. Use the link below to select balls and other fun play things to donate.
