Fundraiser saves recess at Curtis Fundamental Elementary School

Curtis Fundamental Elementary School second-graders, from left, Nicholas Jacobs, Bradley Dyar and Caleb Webber participate in the school's annual Storybook Character Parade on Thursday in Dunedin. 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.
