PTO Playground Project
Last May, the PTO decided to extend our playground project to three Phases. Phase I was completed in August 2012. Phase II was completed in September 2013. Phase III will be completed in the summer of 2014.
Thanks to you we have made great progress towards our goal of updating the school playground to make it safe and inviting for every student! Your hard work and effort with school fundraisers is tremendously appreciated. Check out the PTO link on the school website for a complete list of funding sources.
As additional funds are raised throughout the 2013-2014 school year, we will complete the front portion of the playground during summer of 2014 with more retaining border, rubber mulch, and one large piece of playground equipment if enough funds are raised. the equipment alone costs $25.000; however, it is permanent equipment that will last for decades.
