PTO Raises Funds for Evergreen Playground

(This entry was written by Tonya Breland, Principal of Evergreen Avenue Elementary School.)

For several years, Evergreen’s PTO has been putting away money to purchase new playground equipment for the students. This year, as the current officers close out their terms at Evergreen, they are ready to make the purchase.

Students have been contributing their loose change daily towards the new playground and are excited about it. Staff have also joined in with their own fundraising and are making contributions towards the purchase.

Evergreen views this campaign as a joint community effort since community members have graciously contributed to various fundraising activities in the past.

We still need more help…the cost of the new playground is not limited to just the equipment, but we have the cost of preparing the grounds as well. We are seeking donations and, eventually, time commitments from individuals who can help prepare and install the new equipment.

Please contact Evergreen’s main office at extension 141 if you would like to help.
