Note from the Principal
Greetings Families and Friends of Lester School,
Welcome to the Lester Playground Blog! We are happy that you have decided to check in with us. We have set off on an ambitious project to raise the funding needed to build new state-of-the-art playground areas for our students where children can have fun, play and learn together.
Let me tell you a little about the students and staff at Lester School. Our student population is comprised of 520 students ages K – 6, who come to us with a variety of talents and ability levels. Our Lester School community focus is to “Be Kind-Be Brave-Work Hard.” As a result, our students follow the Golden Rule and treat others the way they would like to be treated. Overall, our students are spirited children that like to use their imaginations for creative play. The Lester Staff is composed of dedicated professionals that care deeply about our students and want all students to have the opportunity to experience movement, stay active, foster wellness, and socialize together in a safe environment.
We currently have two playground areas on site at Lester School. Both areas are used by different grade levels of children at various times during the school day/year. The majority of our current playground equipment is old. We are hoping that in updating equipment, our students and our community will reap the benefits of fun and exercise. In addition, we would like to be able to provide pieces that will help students with sensory, learning, physical and developmental difficulties be able to have enjoyment as they play here at Lester.
Any assistance you can offer in furthering our efforts to see this project through to completion is greatly appreciated! Consider joining us in making our dream turn into reality. Please note that as a registered 503c non-for profit organization, the Playground Committee will provide tax receipts for you.
Thank you for taking the time to consider this request. Feel free to peruse the Lester Community Playground website for more information www.lesterplayground.com
