Our Playground Committee has been hard at work, reviewing submissions from and interviewing contractors. With much consideration we recommend that we award our project to Wilco/Earthscape http://www.earthscapeplay.com/. They do some amazing stuff if you want to check it out! Over the next few weeks we hope to get into discussions around the actual design and how best to proceed with construction in a phased approach pending the availability of funds. Once we have something more concrete to show for what the space could look like we will share it with all of you for your feedback.
We have raised to date $101000!!! We recently were awarded the TD Friends of the Environment Grant for $20,000. We are optimistic that we will have $200000 by the end of June - which could get us something really great! Our goal is to raise $300000. We are still (fingers crossed) hoping to get something in the ground this summer.
We would encourage each of you to start talking about our school and our project with your friends and community as one of them maybe has a valuable insights and to help us gain traction and momentum for our project.
