More than 100 of the nation’s school principals will come together on July 8 to build a playground at Stonehurst Hills Elementary School in Upper Darby.
Principals representing the National Association of Elementary School Principals will help build a playground at the school from 9 a.m.-noon for a service day project as a component of the jointly presented 2017 National Principals Conference, held July 9-11 in Philadelphia. This is the ninth year that the association has partnered with Landscape Structures to donate and build a playground at a deserving elementary school.
The group and corporate partner Landscape Structures, a Delano, Minn.-based commercial playground equipment manufacturer, are donating a PlayBooster playstructure for student ages 5-12, valued at approximately $30,000. The playstructure features the new GeoPlex climbing panels in addition to various ground-level climbers, overhead ladders, and bridges and balancing activities. The playground is ADA-compliant and was designed to welcome children of all abilities.
In addition to building the playground, principal volunteers will do landscaping, painting, and other beautification projects at the school.
