The James Bean PTO was hard at work this summer with the playground upgrade project. The PTO has been raising money for the project for the last 3 years, in the hopes of redoing the whole playground. While the project has run into a few snags, that hasn’t slowed the group down.
The playground saw the addition of some great new equipment this summer, and volunteers put in many hours repairing equipment and repainting the whole playground with bright new colors.
Students were thrilled with the changes on the first day. There’s a little something for everyone. One student said the new rock climbing wall was the best, another preferred the plane. “ I like that the propeller moves, like a real plane!” A third student chimed in that, “The monkey bars are the best! They swing around and it’s fun to pretend that they are rides at the fair!”
Thank you to all our volunteers. If you are interested in helping out or making a donation to this project, please contact PTO President Vanessa Doyon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
