We would like to introduce you to the Playtime Matters Project. With great anticipation Mitchell Elementary Parents and Educators Together (PET) are uniting with the community in effort to provide the children of Mitchell Elementary School new playground equipment. Most of our equipment is dated 20 plus years and is in dire need of replacement.
The Playtime Matters Project committee has spent a great deal of time searching through materials, gathering price quotes and bids, not only on equipment, but also on concrete for footings, as well as ground surfacing materials that are safe enough to cushion a child's fall. The cost of playground equipment is very high, as is the surfacing, even when one is being conservative with the equipment being chosen. We are applying for grants that will help us on our way to reaching the $90,000.00 we need to complete such a project. However, we know more money will be needed than any grant will provide, should we even receive it. We are at the process of raising the monies needed to successfully complete this much needed project. With the help of the community, businesses and foundations valley wide we would like to have the playground ready for recess by the end of Spring of 2019.
will bring years of enjoyment to our community's children.
