Reminder: You Can Help Porters Point School Win a $20,000 Playground Makeover!

Recess is really important! Seemingly countless studies have shown the positive impacts of recess upon numerous facets in education, including academic achievement, social development, focus and attention, classroom behavior, health and wellness, and overall well-being just to name a few.

And, as we mentioned in our November 11 CSD Spotlight article, Porters Point School has entered a contest sponsored by Dannon in the hopes of winning a $20,000 playground makeover and an “ultimate recess day.” The prize includes a playground makeover and an all-day recess party that could include activities like a dunk tank, a giant slide, a climbing wall, or an obstacle course. Let’s all help out!

PPS is collecting the codes from specially marked packages of Danimals yogurt, which, according to Dannon’s website, can be found under the overwrap of DANNON® Danimals® Smoothie, Crush Cup™, Double Crush Cup™, and Coolision® products, while supplies last.

All codes must be submitted by February 8, 2012, to be eligible for the contest, so please send or drop the wrappers off at PPS. Alternatively, community members can e-mail them to

For more information about the contest, visit Dannon’s Rally for Recess website.

Please help us spread the word! Many thanks from Porters Point School!
