The event coincided with the announcement that the school's Rescue Recess Campaign has been a success, according to school principal Pam Metz-Easley, who said the school had met its goal of raising $10,000 to fund hiring two people to monitor daily recess. The campaign was initiated at the beginning of the school year by the school, School Advisory Council, PTA and parents to bring recess back to Curtis Fundamental. The school appealed to businesses, parents and individuals, who contributed cash donations to reach the school's goal.
