Storywalk

Salford Hills is lucky to announce the addition of a brand new Storywalk along our nature trail. A Storywalk is a children's storybook that is spread out page by page across 24 stations along with reflection questions. Our Storywalk begins behind the circle next to the pavilion entrance.

The story Duck on a Bike will be available to read until Monday and then a new book, Fletcher and the Spring Blossoms will take its place. Salford Hills families are welcome to enjoy the trail after school and on weekends.

Thanks again to Boyscout Gabriel Smola for his months of preparation and work installing this wonderful addition to Salford Hills.

Please come and enjoy!

Playground Revitalization Campaign

This year, spurred by the addition of full-day Kindergarten, a small committee began discussing how we could improve our playground as it lacks enough developmentally appropriate options for younger children. The conversation evolved into how we could potentially revitalize the entire SH playground experience through upgraded equipment for all ages, encouraging exploration and imaginative play, and better utilizing the blacktop as a safe play space. However, playgrounds are not funded by the state but rather partially through teacher-requested grants or more likely – Home & School associations. Therefore, in order to fund such a significant project, we will need to add fundraisers in addition to our annual Race for Education. The Race for Education has always been a wonderful and effective fundraiser as it funds ALL of our numerous activities, assemblies, field trips and so much more. Home & School could not function without it. Additional fundraisers would not replace the Race for Education, but specifically raise money for the Playground Revitalization Campaign.



Our expectation is that the playground will be a 3-5 year project, with the potential to make certain enhancements each year. This year will focus on Phase 1 (small scale, big impact) -- addressing some immediate needs and creating a better play space on the blacktop. This is a new and evolving endeavor that we hope will benefit children for years to come. Please feel free to email your ideas, questions or concerns to board@salfordhillshsa.org. Thank you for your support!
