Elementary students welcomed shiny new playground equipment this fall. One large piece of older, under-utilized equipment was removed to install three new pieces.
“Outdoor play is integral in the development of the whole child,” said ICS principal, Amanda Angaiak who spent some time on the new Spinami herself. “It is our hope that the new equipment will keep kids engaged physically and provide opportunity for social-emotional development all winter long.”
Thank you to the CSF PTO for spearheading the project and doing a significant amount of the fundraising necessary to purchase and install the equipment. We also extend our gratitude to the GVEA Goodcents program, the Fort Wainwright Community Spouses Club, Dr. Rick and Maureen Sheridan, and Dr. Rick and Rebecca Sheridan, Jr. for their financial contributions. Parent volunteers Rich Meyer and Brian Weekley spent many hours assisting Trost Construction with the demolition and install. We are grateful.
