We are are eager to make critical repairs to the east Early Childhood playground. This space is an extension of our toddler and preschool classrooms, and it is vital that we make needed playground improvements in summer 2024. Fundraising efforts continue, but click here to see a list of Karen McDonald Playground supporters to date.
In honor of long-time toddler teacher and director of aftercare and summer programs, we are naming this space after Karen McDonald. She passed away after a valiant battle against cancer in 2020. Karen was passionate about play and early childhood education. She was beloved by our community and had an incredible impact on the lives of her students and colleagues.
Help us honor Karen and make our outdoor play vision a reality for our youngest students!
Through individual gifts, pledges, and Fund-A-Vision donations at our past two auctions, we raised more than $1,300,000 toward our west and south playground transformations. Click here to see the list of supporters for our west and south playgrounds.
In September 2021, we completed our West Playground for first and second grades. In October 2022, we completed the South Playground for third through eighth grade. Students are enjoying the new play equipment, outdoor classroom, bench seating, expanded sport field, and cheery landscaping. Keep scrolling to see images of our new play spaces.
