This year we are raising money to“Depave” the back border of the playground and replace it with landscaped pathways, benches, 20 trees, and plants.

Next we will replace the swing with a new piece of playground equipment and repair and improve the tree mounds around the play structure.

The final phase will include the installation of a student created mural on the asphalt and repaint the futsal and baseball fields.
