Cherokee Heights Middle School PTO Playground Fund
There are exciting changes coming to the Cherokee fields. Our students are ready to climb, swing and spin, and we hope you will join us in giving them the opportunity.
After watching students stand around on their phones, or create their own, unsafe climbing and sliding equipment, a group of teachers, parents, and community members came together to spearhead the playground project. Thanks to input from students, we have a design with middle school needs and wants in mind. Think ninja training with the bonus of calmer kids in classrooms. The benefits of play and exercise do not stop when students leave elementary school.
Starting with Cherokee’s blank slate of a playground, the project is ambitious with an estimated cost of $75,000-$80,000. Funds from grants and generous donations have formed a base that we are eager to watch grow. Donations of any amount are appreciated!
