BENEFITING: PTA OREGON CONGRESS
For years, Laurelhurst students and neighbors have made the best of the school's playground - which is really just an asphalt parking lot. After countless skinned knees and elbows, stitches and broken bones, we're ready for a change. Our school's lack of adequate play and sports facilities reduces our kids opportunities to play, be active and benefit from a full physical educational curriculum. Laurelhurst students, parents and staff have joined forces to transform our beloved neighborhood school grounds from the parking lot it is today, to a wonderful multi-sport and creative play area. Plans include: - 19,000 ftsq. Turf mutlisport field - providing a soft, safe space for our kids and families to play a variety of games and sports, from tag to t-ball. - 6,000 ftsq. Covered area - a covered outdoor play area is a common feature among most other PPS schools. It provides year round shade and shelter, which greatly increases physical educational and outdoor recess options for our kids. - 400 ftsq. Creative play stage - a unique, portable and low cost feature that encourages creative play for kids of all ages and interests. The Laurelhurst PTA, students, staff and parent organizing committee have collaborated to plan, design and implement this transformation - with a goal of completing the project before the end of 2016. Here's where we need your help. We ask our families, friends, alumni and neighbors to contribute to this fundraising drive. The sooner funds are raised, the sooner you'll see results. Please make a donation that you are comfortable with from $5 to $5,000. Every bit helps us reach our fundraising campaign goal this year!
