Other Information

Winner, Winner!

Here is the playground structure we are recommending for purchase. The colors will match what we currently have and be covered with an 18X18 shade.


The plan is for installation to occur before the end of the school year, but there are still some steps we have to complete (approval through maintenance department, approval through school board, and then the work can begin-ish). I will keep you all apprised of our progress but am excited to see this happen!
