If you weren’t able to make it to Green Fest to see the unveiling, we’re pleased to present the plans and renderings for the new playground. The new playground design introduces much-needed green space and areas for teaching activities, as well as creative play using natural materials and equipment. In addition, the existing large parking lot playground area behind the new designed space will remain available to allow for activities such as soccer, basketball and other types of sports, and will be furnished with new equipment to facilitate that type of play as well. The projected budget for the project is $150-180,000, but we hope to offset some of this with material donations and volunteer labor. To date, fundraising efforts have raised $44,600, and the school is contributing an additional $50,000, which brings our current total allocated to this project so far to $94,600. Our goal is to begin work by June 2016. Thank you all for your fundraising efforts to date, and we are confident we can reach our remaining fundraising goals together!
