Goal – New Vision Charter School has been approved for expansion! Our new building will be ready for move-in August of 2019. One of the most exciting elements of the new building is the opportunity to customize a new playground. New Vision Charter School PTO is sponsoring the fundraising and design of our new 3-8 playground! Our goal is to have a playground that is accessible to every student, inspires movement and play, and encourages teamwork. 

History – In the planning phase for the new campus PTO was tasked with designing  and funding a playground that was innovative. The PTO found different playground designs that were presented to students, staff, and parents. Students voted and, in a clear victory, chose the Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course design. 
 
Need – Current research shows the importance of physical activity for students during their school day. Not only does it help with them being able to retain information at a higher rate, it also results in less behavioral issues.  The Ninja Warrior themed playground is unique because it exercises student's endurance, strength, and flexibility. Endurance: playground is circuit style and promotes continuous play and offers diverse challenges for all levels of athleticism.  Strength: This playground design includes overhead climbers, vertical climbers, balance bridges/pods. These diverse elements strengthen core balance and muscles that are not often exercised on a typical playground structure.  Flexibility: Tunnels, bridges, and bars encourage student movement that will exercise student flexibility.  Not only can this playground be used for recess, it can be incorporated into our physical education programming! Play on this playground design allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination and dexterity. It also encourages physical, cognitive, and emotional growth. Play is a huge factor in healthy brain development, which is why this playground is so important. 
 
Financials –After meeting with representatives from GoPlay inc. we have determined that the overall cost of this project totals $51,200.00. To see what your sponsorship can get you visit: www.newvisioncharter https://www.newvisioncharterschool.org/fundraising-matters/school.

Progress - One of the main elements of being a charter school is parent and community involvement. PTO has been running multiple fundraisers this year and has raised $23,000.00 through parent and community support.  We still have a long way to go!  Some donors have gotten the companies they work for to match their donations to this great cause, this is a wonderful way to include our community in this project.  If you want to make a lasting impact on our school and our community we encourage you to participate in these fundraising efforts.
