Hi SF K Files folks!
I'm the pre-k special education teacher at John Muir Elementary School; I teach SFUSD's only autism-specific pre-k classroom. As most of you know, John Muir ES serves a high-needs population. Our special education and general education classrooms do not have a play space; the students run outside and play on a patch of bare asphalt every day. This is extremely inequitable-almost every single SFUSD CDC or special education classroom has a place to play!
Our proposal was just accepted for the "Pepsi Refresh" project, and now I need you to vote for us! You can vote once a day, every day between July 1-31, and "boost" your voting by entering codes off the caps of pepsi products marked "Pepsi Refresh." If we're one of the top 15 vote recipients, we'll receive $25,000 to build a playground.
You can vote at http://www.refresheverything.com/muirautismplayproject by signing up with pepsi or using facebook. You can also vote via text by sending the code 107391 to Pepsi (73774) every day (hint: enter in 73774 as a contact to make it easier).
You can also help me by sharing this with anyone who might be interested in helping, forwarding this, and helping me publicize! Here are the ways you can follow my project:

Please help! This is a great way to create equity among SFUSD schools, and help a struggling school in San Francisco.
