PATH TO PLAY
It is time for our playground to be revitalized in order to inspire our students' love of playing, learning, along with being creative and curious.
A playground offers time to rest, play, imagine, be physically fit, and socialize with peers. Playgrounds serve as a place for peer bonds to be nurtured and developed. Recess helps encourage better cognitive functioning - research shows that after recess students are more attentive and have better cognitive function. Our Lower School students deserve a playground where they can become more fit, create the energy to be able to focus on academics, and develop social and emotional skills to help them become leaders. We have multiple options for donor naming opportunities and giving levels.
