Presentation on theme: "MONROVIA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PLAYGROUND IMPROVEMENT PLAN"— Presentation transcript:

This past summer the community advisors asked me to help put together a detailed plan for the playgrounds at MES. By detailed plan we need quotes, lead times, installation plans, and schedule/timelines. What I’m about to share with you is an update on our progress, we are still seeking funding for several of these projects. We need to complete this detailed plan before Oct, so that we can put in requests for funding. Introduce playground committee: Community Advisors: T. Clemons, Q. Thomas, R.Wietlake; Teacher representative: T.Jones; Parent Volunteers Brian Mellburg and M.Price I’d also like to recognize our school board representative Jeff Anderson & principle Dr.Davis for their continued support, and commitment towards making this possible.
