Afton-Lakeland Elementary School Playgrounds Expansion
Big changes are in store for the students and community of Afton-Lakeland Elementary in Lakeland, MN!
Afton-Lakeland’s parent-teacher association has taken on a large project to update the playgrounds by August of 2020 in the hopes to make them a more fun and safe area for the kids.
Although the current playgrounds are in fact, safe, there are quite a few reasons why the administration would like to see these improvements:
- Update equipment: current playgrounds were installed 20-years ago.
- Leverage Stillwater, MN district funding: there is a bond available
- Increase safety: reduction of injuries with new material to replace the wood chips
- Expanded kindergarten playground: since Pre-K was added, this area now serves double the capacity.
- Invest in a community asset: local Afton, MN residents also use and enjoy the areas.
There are five ways the community can help Afton-Lakeland reach their goals for funding this project:
- Attend the kick-off fundraiser event on Friday, May 17th from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at Afton House Inn in Afton, MN. Tickets are $25 at the door.
- Contribute a silent auction item to the above event by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Make a monetary donation through Afton-Lakeland’s partnership with the Saint Croix Valley Foundation at aftonlakelandpta.com.
- Volunteer your time and skills for demolition and install over the next two summers.
- Share this article with your friends and family to spread the word!
