Einstein Playground Replacement Project
Our PTSA is trying to raise the money to replace the playground equipment at Einstein Elementary so that our kids have something safer, more fun, more colorful, more modern, and more engaging to play on at recess than what currently exists. The main playground equipment, which was installed when the school was built in 1998, is now obsolete. As parts wear out or break (which has already begin to happen) there is no way to get replacement parts or repair the equipment – the solution is to simply remove the broken or worn-out piece.
Did you Know?
used to be a bridge but it deteriorated so it was removed and covered
up by boards. See picture here.
play equipment screws loosen regularly and facilities staff has
to tighten them often. See picture here
equipment is rusting. See picture here
section of the playground gets so slick when it rains that
the recess monitors regularly close it off. One recess
monitor called it a banana peel! See picture here.
- Facilities regularly marks the wood that has
deteriorated so that it can be evaluated and replaced. See picture here
Replacing the playground is a very expensive endeavor.
We know many of you have contributed generously to our school and we appreciate that generosity. However, the money we raise through our fall Pass the Hat and spring Fun Run fundraisers is what is necessary to keep the PTSA’s current programs up and running on a yearly basis and are insufficient to cover the cost of a new playground. For that reason, we need your help to raise $45,000 by the end of January to support a spring break installation. We believe that as a community we can reach that goal. Can you help?
We've created a website specifically for this project. Check out http://einsteinplayground.net to learn more about the project and ways you can donate. Lets put the Play back in our Playground! If you have any questions or want to help with fundraising please contact Christy Keating or Julie Lemery
