DESCRIPTION

Looking to help support our Playground?

Help us reach our goal

OUR STORY

In 2011, a brave group of parents started to plan for a new community playground at Geyer Road Elementary school. In 2013 a new playground became a priority when the old playground was removed due to safety issues. Through the years many parents have been involved in discussions and fundraisers to help bring the new playground to life.

Today’s playground committee consists of a group of dedicated parents who want to create a dynamic play space for use both during recess and afterschool. So far we have built phase 1, a small play space under the trees. These pieces are inspired by nature and give children the chance to practice agility, jumping, and decision making. It also gives the children a place to play out of the sun.

In addition to Phase 1 of the playground, we have also purchased other equipment for our students to use. This past year we used a mature CD to purchase class sets of snow shoes for the students to use during recess and physical education. We have also used our Price Chopper Tools for Schools points to order each grade level a set of balls, jump ropes, and Frisbees to be used during recess.

We are continuing to fundraise for our playground in a variety of ways including family events, grant writing, Amazon Smile, and sponsorships of playground pieces. Please let us know how you can help!

We have spent many hours planning, discussing and watching students play. By doing this we have come up with several goals for our main play area:

  1. Replace sand with woodchips. This is very expensive but it is necessary for safety and cleanliness. This will cost about $22,000 installed
  2. Create a play space that is interesting to Kindergarteners and Fifth Graders. We want to develop a space that continues to be challenging and fun throughout grade school.
  3. Design a play space that is safe and fun while giving children the chance to develop balance, upper and lower body strength, social skills and cooperation.
  4. Create a space that requires movement from one piece of equipment to another while leaving open spaces for cooperative games and sports.
