Preschool/Kindergarten Playground 2012

Preschool/Kindergarten Playground Preparation

Things were swinging as volunteers gathered at Meridian on August 10th, 2012 to begin the preparations for the new Preschool/Kindergarten playground.  Gary Baxa worked with a playground specialist to establish a plan for the playground's assembly.  With the help of tools supplied by Daykin Lumber Co. and other volunteers, as well as a Bobcat with a post hole digger, the playground began to take shape.  While one crew worked on the playground, another crew of volunteers removed playground equipment that no longer met playground code criteria. Volunteers worked through the morning measuring and drilling holes for various support poles. Throughout the day, volunteers received breakfast rolls and burritos, beverages, and a Valentino's pizza luncheon. The crew worked into the evening hours in an attempt to complete the project before the cement truck's scheduled arrival. Cement was poured on Saturday, August 11th to secure support poles and steps.  Plans are under way to pour gravel and then fence off the new playground.  

Students and staff would like to thank all the volunteers that supplied tools, machinery, knowledge, and labor!!!  The project was a success because of your commitment to making our school a better place for children!
