Playground Update!

The PAC is excited to announce that our playground is scheduled to be installed this weekend
(Saturday, October 15th)! 

We have all the help we need for the build but please come by and say hello!  
A concession will be serving food so come out, grab a hot dog and watch this historic event (and raise a little money for our school at the same time).  

Please remember that this will be a construction site with heavy equipment operating.
Children are welcome to come and watch but it is very important that they are supervised. 

Full playground cost: $70,423.33 
We received grants from the district, and the city, donations from many amazing parents/companies and the PAC put in an amazing $28,824.95. 

Thank you to all who helped with the fundraising without your help we could not have done this. 

Playground Lead: Holly and Jeremy 
Playground Negotiations: Holly, Jeremy and Wendy 
Playground Design: Holly, Jeremy, Wendy, Cara, Nadine, Ellie and Paula with input from the kids.  

PLEASE NOTE: After the install, the playground will be fenced off until it can be officially inspected for safety. We don't expect that this will take long but we do not have a timeframe for this process. 
An official ribbon-cutting/opening will be scheduled once we have this approval.
