Elementary and middle school principals from across the country gathered on Monday, June 29, to participate in the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) seventh annual Community Service Day. The service projects included a school playground build at James A. Garfield Elementary School in Long Beach, Calif., and a beautification project at Charles W. Bursch Elementary School in Compton, Calif. Find more info recycled playgrounds here.
We installed new elementary school playground equipment in Long Beach that will invite students ages 5 to 12 to spend time outdoors being active while also encouraging interaction among peers. The PlayBooster playground structure delivers a variety of play components including climbers, playground slides, overhead events and sensory play panels. In addition to the playground build, a team of principals planted flowers and painted a mural to create a playful atmosphere at the Compton school playground.
We know that securing funds for a community or school playground can often be a challenge. But the great news is that there is nearly always money available... you just have to know where to look for it! And we're here to help you with that. We have fundraising programs, a playground grant guide and purchasing contracts to help bring your playground plans to fruition.
