New Playground at West Middleton Elementary

The beginning of the school year just became even more exciting for our students at West Middleton Elementary! 

Earlier this week, the school hosted an unveiling ceremony for their brand-new playground! 

The original playground, built in 1992, showed signs of significant wear and tear. West Middleton Elementary shared a survey late last school year with students and staff that showed overwhelming support for utilizing the 2022 'Wolverine Dash' funds for a new playground. The new playground was also funded in part by school and district funding.

While it is hard to part with a piece of West Middleton Elementary history, Principal Debbie Goodfriend-Kennedy and her staff are excited to make new memories with their students. 

The $82,000 project was built mindfully for all students and features adaptive equipment such as a wheelchair-friendly 'wolverine market' play structure, a rubber surfaced path to the playground, and musical instruments. 

We are grateful for the supportive West Middleton Elementary Parent-Teacher Organization and community that helped make this project possible! 

Enjoy the brand-new and creative space, Wolverines!
