Read More

Please sign up to join the work party to refresh the paint on the playground!

When: Saturday, June 17th at 11:00a
Where: McDonald Int'l Playground

We will be restriping the lines on the kickball, soccer, and four square courts; painting in the four squares with bright colors; and adding new symbols on the blacktop to indicate where classes line up each morning. We will need volunteers to sweep the surfaces to prepare for the paint, operate the striper, mix and roll the paint on the four squares, and add the symbols using stencils and spray paint. Children can definitely join the work party! They will take great pride in seeing the results of their hard work whenever they step onto the playground. All supplies will be provided and the PTA is funding lunch from Jimmy John’s.
