Thanks to the Vernonia PTA, kids at the Vernonia Schools have a new play structure to use this school year. The PTA raised the funds and volunteers, including members of the Vernonia Freewheelers Club installed it. The PTA plans to continue raising money and will add onto and expand the structure in the future.
Installation Planned for August 22-23
The Vernonia PTA is pleased to announce that Phase I of a new playground play structure has been purchased for the school campus. The PTA plans to install the entire structure in three phases as funds become available.
Plans call for Phase I to be installed and ready for students on the first day of school this year.
The PTA has been hard at work during the last several years raising funds to purchase and install playground equipment. The purchase of Phase I will cost just over $7,000.
An installation work party has been scheduled for Friday, August 23 and Saturday, August 24. Work party leaders and volunteers are needed.
“This is a huge deal!” says PTA President Melissa Zavales. “Our kids and school have been without a playground! We are so excited and this should be a huge and exciting event for our community and students!”
A Grand Opening celebration is being planned during the School Open House on October 9th.
