Will you help us build a playground???

Remember your childhood memories of chasing friends around a playground? Maybe you remember the day you overcame your fear of the slide or the first time you could make it across the monkey bars. A playground is an important part of a child's development and we need your help to give our children at St. Bernard School the opportunity to one day look back and remember all the wonderful memories they made on the playground! Our goal is to create a fun, safe, and creative environment for our students to play in. We want to build both social and motor skills, confidence and self esteem. Currently the black concrete on our playground makes running and playing hard on our knees and noggins! We want to transform our playground with the best kid friendly equipment so it will be enjoyed by the children for years to come. We want to transform our playground with the best kid-friendly equipment so it will be enjoyed by children for years to come. Our goal is to purchase and install a new unit for children ages 5 to 12, with challenging 
vertical climbs, playground slides, expression swings and ramps with activities. The cost to purchase and install a unit of this size and quality is $52,411.00 and we only need $16,000 left to raise. To make this investment in our students' physical and social education, we ask for your help. Make a commitment to making memories for the children. As echoed by past and current families and students of the school, our successes have been made possible because of the contributions of time and talent, and the generosity of many. Every dollar counts and no donation is too small. Please consider donating any amount to help us endow our students with the gift of play! More importantly, please consider sharing this page with your circle of friends, family and neighbors!! Thank you very much for your support!
