$30,000 Reached for Playground and Athletic Field Improvement Project!
Playground: |play-ground| <noun> a welcoming place; a fun place to play; a place where friendships are developed; a place where community grows!
Why do the project?
- Improve drainage issues and enhance safety
- Make our playground and athletic field usable all year - regardless of weather (last school year we lost 30 days of recess time because of poor playground and field conditions).
- Neighborhood beautification (improved landscaping and additional seating)
- Upgrade equipment (6 new pieces) to provide play opportunities for all kids
Where is the money coming from?
- Horace Mann School PTA $30,000.00
- St. Paul Public School District $30,000.00 (part of this amount is a match of the PTA money)
- City of St. Paul STAR GRANT $60,000.00 (match of the school district and PTA money)
To have $120,000.00 for the playground improvement plan the PTA must raise $30,000.00 to complete the project.
