Highland Park Elementary was recently awarded a $1,021 OK Community Cares grant to purchase a Gaga Ball pit.
The grant will allow Highland Park Elementary to enhance their current playground by adding a 15 ft in-ground Gaga Ball pit. Students in pre-k through fifth grade physical education classes will get to use the new playground equipment to teach hand-eye coordination, reaction time, agility and teamwork skills.
