Does your child want a new playground at Mountain School?
Join me on Thursday, December 14th at 4:30 and talk to our school district board about the need for a new updated playground at Mountain School. That was the number one complaint about going back to Mountain School was our playground was not fun. They liked the variety of Smith River's playground. It would be very impactful if students and parents came to the school board meeting and talked about our need for a new playground. If you have questions about how you and your child can help, please call the office and I'd be happy to talk to you further.
