It is with great excitement that the District announces the launch of a new playground at Ivy Hill school! Lori Hrbek from Alexandra’s Playground contacted the district in December and expressed interest in donating a playground for students and the community. Alexandra’s Playground was founded in 2009 on the principle that active play leads to the nurturing of the spirit and mind (https://alexandrasplayground.org/).
The Facilities department worked on the design to select the proper equipment and colors. Several meetings were held with Ivy Hill School Principal, Dorrice Rayam, and the Alexandra’s playground team to delegate tasks that would be completed by the Kompan team of builders and the District. After five months, the playground ribbon cutting took place on June 10, 2023! The Facilities department is in the process of completing minor touches that will conclude after the school year ends. This playground will bring joy not only to students, but also to the whole community for many years to come.
