Elementary playground under construction

Kalama Elementary’s PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) donated $19,540.20 for the purchase of a swing set for the school’s new playground. The donation was the product of fundraising at various events and charity sales over the years.

In addition to the efforts of the PTO, families involved in the construction of the new school have begun graciously donating funds for the purchase and installation of an exterior slide that would connect the interior of the second floor media center at Kalama Elementary to the outdoor main entry plaza.

Originally removed from the project’s final design for budgetary purposes, the slide was intended to provide a whimsical signature feature that would not only greet students each morning as they start the school day, but also be used as an incentive for student achievement.

Thank you, PTO members and construction families, for enhancing our campus facilities!
