Let it pour….let it pour….let it pour! Concrete is being poured today for our playground renovation. The large area is the new basketball court, the area directly in front of the gate is a class assembly area when getting ready to return to the classroom and the large area to the right against the building has been enlarged for full size four square courts. John Olson and Olson Construction are our concrete suppliers for this PACE sponsored project.
