Oakview Brick Campaign

We are excited to announce an upcoming project that will improve Oakview Elementary’s playground facilities and main entrance. This project is centered around the following plans:

• Install a new major playground structure

• Incorporate new equipment into the kindergarten playground

• Create a brick walkway at main school entrance

• Improve landscaping where necessary

The Oakview PTA’s Goal is to provide $50,000 to support the improvements and new playground. This includes funding from individual families as well as corporate sponsorships. To spearhead the campaign, we are selling personalized bricks in two sizes to line the new walkway at the main school entrance. This is a chance to help build a better Oakview for the future and leave your lasting mark at its doorstep. Thank you for your support! Click below for details of this campaign.
