Accomplishments 2015-2016

               

The Foundation’s major focus this year was completing the playground campaign and installing the new playground, and WE DID IT!  Students now enjoy a beautiful, accessible playground with a court for foursquare and basketball, safe and fun climbing equipment and swings, spinners, “slide mountain” with a fort, a giant chessboard, a track, sports supplies, a Buddy Bench dedicated to our counselor, Ms. Brenda Stroman, who passed away this school year, and lots of room to run and play.
