Roosevelt Elementary School joined efforts with UC CalFresh Tulare/Kings County, Mulcahy Middle School, Tulare City School District (TCSD) and Tulare County Department of Public Health to increase physical activity and learning development using playground stencils!
More than 20 stencils were painted on Roosevelt Elementary Kindergarten playground. The stencil project would not have been possible if it weren't for the wonderful volunteers. More than 30 volunteers assisted in the stencil project including school teachers, parents, Mulcahy Middle school students, community members, and UCCE staff.
The art students at Mulcahy Middle School went above and beyond and created the snake, butterfly, flower, tree, and the rocket ship hopscotch stencil. Adding these unique stencils allowed the project to expand creatively! The students also traced the stencils a day before the project to increase efficiency the day of. Dr. Gist, TCSD Superintendent, supported the Roosevelt stencil project by providing paint and assistance from the district's maintenance department. Roosevelt Elementary School Principal, Mr. Felix, provided lunch to thank all the wonderful volunteers.
