HELP THESE KIDS RAISE FUNDS FOR A NEW PLAYGROUND THEY CAN BE PROUD OF!
Washington Elementary is a K-5 school with a population of approximately 280 students. Our students utilize our playground daily with recess and our PE classes. Our current playground equipment is old and could use many new updates.
Our new playground site is currently all grass with a black chain link fence around the parameter. The total square footage of the space is approximately 97,000 square feet. Our goal is to acquire new playground equipment, designate free grass space for free play and football, and create an asphalt space for basketball, four square, hopscotch, chalk drawings, etc.
Recess is a very important part of the day for students. Research shows that recess has a positive impact not only on the development of students’ social skills, but also on achievement and learning in the classroom.
Fundraising – our projected goal for the entire project is $150,000. We currently have $23,700 committed from community support.
Our GoFundMe project and other fundraising ideas is projected to raise $50,000. Click here to donate today!
