Similkameen Elementary Secondary School is a fabulous school. With excellent staff and students this school is one that parents can be proud to send their children to each day.
There is something missing though, and in case you haven’t noticed, take a good look at the current elementary playground. Most of the playground equipment has been removed due to unsafe treated wood. There remains very little for the approximately one hundred and fifty elementary students to “play” on but one swing set that holds two students, and a few monkey bars.
Let’s face it – the playground is in sad shape. The Parent Advisory Committee along with school staff is focused on raising funds to remedy this situation. It is our goal that a new playground be installed within this current school year, or at the very latest the next school year. We are trying very hard to raise monies to accomplish that goal by fundraising and applying for gaming grants. If you would like to donate funds, or help us with that goal please contact either myself – firstname.lastname@example.org (Wendy Hunt) PAC Vice-Chair, email@example.com (Tammy Hartfield) PAC Chair or Barton Tumlinson Vice Principal at 250-499-2727 with any ideas or suggestions that you may have.
We welcome everyone to participate, as the playground is not just a tool for children to use at school, but rather one that the entire community can benefit from.
