Dear Parents and Friends of École Heather Park Elementary School:
The École Heather Park Elementary Parent Advisory Council (PAC) and school administration are working together to make our playground a place where children will have the safe, stimulating and healthy opportunities to play that they so need and deserve. We really need your help.
There are three areas being considered as part of the Playground Improvement Project:
- Increasing the capacity of the primary playground in front of the school by purchasing and installing a second play structure to the west of the existing play area.
- Moving the newer play structure from Austin Road School to the basketball courts behind Heather Park Elementary. Two of the existing basketball courts would be converted to playground and two basketball courts would remain.
- Adding two sets of goal posts to school playing field to allow for games to be played across the width of the field, and to make it easier for younger children to use the field.
The PAC is currently working with equipment suppliers, school administration, the city, and school district staff to review options and finalize costs for the project. The project is being jointly funded by the PAC and school administration and the PAC’s main fundraising drive for this project is this month (February 2012). The more money we can raise, the more improvements we can make to the playground!
A donation from your family or company would be very much appreciated. Your donation will have a direct impact on the health and happiness of our children now and in the future. All donations will go directly to the Playground Improvement Project and donations of $25 or more will receive a tax receipt.
Thank you in advance for your support of this project. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will get back to you right away. Together we can make this happen!
