PTA Playground Update

Tiger Teachers and Guardians,

We are so very excited that the playground improvements will be completed soon!  The kids are very happy with the updates and have enjoyed playing the last couple of weeks.

The new piece of equipment has been installed, the new boarders have been installed, the new rubber mats are in place and one tractor trailer load of wood carpet has already been spread.  In the next few weeks the replacement swing will be added, the yellow freestanding poles will be removed and the additional three tractor trailer loads of wood carpet will be delivered and spread.

Thank you all for your support of the fundraising needed to make these changes possible!  We wanted to give you an update on the money that has been spent and will be spent over the next few years to make sure that the playground stays safe for our students to use.
