Thank you to area businesses like Ten & Two Coffee and Lil' Rascals Daycare for also collecting coins for the cause!
If you are interested in donating towards the installation of accessible equipment and a smooth surface for our elementary and/or intermediate school, we are still taking donations. We are also looking for Playground committee volunteers. Our Playground committee meets the first Thursday of every month in the Elementary School library at 4:00 pm, and our next meeting will be Thursday, November 2nd.
Your generosity will go towards purchasing accessible playground equipment and the installation of a safe surface for all of our students to enjoy. We are looking to raise enough money to make the playground a reality.
Together, we can build a truly inclusive playground accessible to all students at Lansing Elementary School.
