Mrs. Benton’s Class Proposal Mrs. Benton’s class is proposing to repaint the 3rd grade – 4th grade basketball court. We have been working hard to achieve this.


Interviews We interviewed the following people: COACH LOE, MR.LESTER, MRS. FRICKE, MRS. NEWBY, COACH AUSTIN, AND STAN


One of the reasons we need lines is because people say they shot a three pointer when they didn’t. It makes a big fight that goes on for awhile and wastes our playground time and we don’t like that. If we had a four square court it would help us fight less. Even in four square there is fighting and people start to make up rules. These problems waste our time and it is not fun when it happens. Then we don’t look forward to having playground the next day.


Paint for Black Tops The paint has to be exterior latexbased. The color should be black, red, yellow, or blue. We need to add three point lines.


Type and Price of Paint/Paint Equipment We will need latex-lite 2-gal, optimum driveway resvfacer paint

Price- 17.99 Density polyester roller covers 6-pack Price- 9.81 6 Economy heavy-duty roller frame Price- 3.57 per roller 2 paint tray liners Price- 0.97 per tray


The Playground is Dirty The playground is dirty. we chose this problem Because: 1.) we want the play ground to represent our school well . 2.) the playground is dirty and does not look good.


Too Many People Are Littering! • Reasons why we need more trash cans • People can’t seem to find the trashcans. • When people can’t find trashcans they litter. • When people litter the playground isn’t pretty.

• We can fix this by… • Putting trash cans in better locations. • Like on the basketball court by the entrance. • We could put one close to the play area.

Remember don’t litter!!!!


Pricing of Trash Containers • We would attach the trash containers to the fence with bungee cords • Heavy Duty Trash Containers can be as low as $8.95 • Blue Hawk Adjustable Bungee Cords for $3.97


Equipment Problems!!! • Problem- The basketballs get stuck in the nets when we shoot • Problem- Some goals do not have rims • Problem- The equipment is falling apart • Problem- There are no tetherballs on the poles • Problem- Some classes are loosing their balls


WE NEED NEW NETS, TETHER BALLS, BASKETBALLS, SOCCER BALLS, AND FOUR SQUARE BALLS.


PRICE ON EQUIPMENT!! • The lowest price on nets we found were $6.95 • We need $24.80 for all four nets • We found a tether ball for $12.00 • We need $24.00 for two


People forget to bring containers out so we don’t have anything to play with. People are complaining about balls being lost or stolen.

I hope these problems will be solved soon!!!!!

STORAGE PROBLEMS Here are some problems about storage.


STORAGE CONTAINER PRICES WE N E ED A STORAGE B I N, AND SOME B U NG E E C O RD S ,

The total is $76.00


How long will it take? • If we switch recess and lunch to tape and paint and pack up early and paint during carpool 1 and 2. • We can do 50 minutes a day so then taping will take one day and painting will take 3 days and will dry overnight so it will take 4 days with a total of 3 hours and 20 minutes.


The overall price is about $198.82

We are planning to do the following because we can’t afford that much money: 1.Have a bake sale 2.Get a boy scout to make a bench 3.Take donations 4. Use leftover paint from other projects
