Backpacks to Play.

As COVID-19 has changed our PE world in every way possible. It still remains that kids need to play. As a fan of play, it was the task of Coach Ollison and Coach Rickey to figure out how to get kids' active and playing, even though PE at Lykins Elementary was not virtual. As a fan of play, Coach O used the grant money from the Healthy Zone School Program to purchase backpacks, all sizes of balls, jump ropes, and a few more trinkets for the kids to play with while they were virtual. She knew they wouldn't be active in her class, but knew that with a bit of creativity, the kids would find a way to play. Backpacks are scheduled to go out Wednesday, September 16th.

Thank you to The Cooper Institute and the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas for allowing us this opportunity to serve our students in a challenging PE world.
