Fund-A-Vision

St. Paul's students play outside on the Pre-K and Kindergarten playground.

Hear from St. Paul's teachers about how outdoor play positively impacts social emotional wellness, student concentration, skill development, and more.

Outdoor play is a critical part of St. Paul's education. We recognize the social emotional wellness benefits for students across all age groups. 

For children and adolescents, outdoor environments provide a myriad of benefits in their development. Daily interaction in outdoor environments enhances physical activity and play as well as provides health benefits such as reducing frequency of obesity and disease. It can also enhance mental health and resilience, while boosting self-discipline and a child’s ability to concentrate. Lastly, being outdoors with nature can improve environmental awareness.

Playground Transformation Status

Site Plan for St. Paul's West Playground

Through the 2020 Fund-A-Vision at last year’s auction, St. Paul’s parents raised nearly $50,000 toward our first playground transformation. While the school had to pause and tackle the challenges of safely returning to campus last fall, they never lost the vision for new outdoor play spaces.

Thanks to many generous donations, we are thrilled that work on the West Playground will begin this summer, and students will be enjoying the new space in fall 2021.

Our work is not yet done! This year, parents are contributing to the next stage of the plan - the South Playground. The Fund-A-Vision money raised this year will purchase equipment, resurfacing, and landscaping for this reimagined play space.

If you have not yet made a gift to this year’s Fund-A-Vision, will you join us today? We hope you will add your support to the St. Paul’s 2021 Fund-A-Vision for Outdoor Play!
