Playground Project

 PHASE II
    Completed for the 2017-18 school year
  • Add play/climbing equipment for ages 5-12
  • Add two 10' x 10' four-square pads near the new playground (location uses available space and spreads out the older and younger students'
    play areas)
  • Add sun shade near preschool playground


 PHASE I
    Completed for 2016-17 school year
  • Added 10 swings
  • Added play/climbing equipment for ages 2-5 (including fence)
  • Replaced/relocated two tether-ball poles
  • Added three 8' x 8' four-square pads



                                    

The playground for ages 6-12 is located by the soccer/football field
  • Older students play on the field everyday
  • We have a recess teacher in this area and one by the swings
  • This makes use of available space and keeps activities spread out
  • This makes a natural division of "big kid" and "little kid"
    playground areas
  • This was the most level area of the playground that required the least amount of site prep
