Bartlett Elementary PTA does
April 18, 2007
The Bartlett Elementary School PTA has come up with a great approach for
improving the school's playground. Instead of asking for more taxpayer money, the PTA is planning to raise
the needed funds through private donations.
The PTA has created a subcommittee, Helping Our Playground Evolve (HOPE) to function as a non-profit fund-raiser.
Estimates for improving the
playground are said to run between $60,000 and $80,000. HOPE has
already raised $8,000.
According to HOPE chairman Holly
Tate, the playground is rotting and
sinking into the ground. The group hopes to rebuild it with new
equipment that encourages children to be more physically active.
We are impressed that the PTA has resisted asking for taxpayer monies to
make the improvements, and instead is raising the needed funds
through private donations.
Kudos to the Bartlett Elementary School PTA for taking on this
