Extreme Playground Makeover: The Adventure begins...
A few weeks ago, our school was faced with the dilemma of replacing our current playground structure. Our students work so hard every day exercising their minds in our classrooms exercising that they deserve a top-notch place to exercise their bodies, so we are asking all NCS Eagles,young and old, to join together for an Extreme Playground Makeover.
Our Extreme Playground Makeover involves four phases:
PHASE 1: The playground area (Purchasing a new surface and playground equipment. We will keep the current swings and add a large play structure and 4-6 additional pieces.)
PHASE 2: The basketball court would be expanded to include two basketball courts and 4 four square courts.
PHASE 3: Outdoor classroom spaces that include an area of picnic tables and an amphitheater in the side of one of the hillsides.
PHASE 4: Track with workout stations (This area would circle the entire playground area. Along the track there will be workout stations.)
Our goal is to complete Phase 1 by the beginning of the school year. Depending on the items chosen, the budget for this phase could be anywhere between $40,000-$60,000. In order to stay on schedule, we need to have our funding in place by June 15.
