The PTA and Playground Committee would like to thank the WPES community for its patience as we partner with City Schools of Decatur to improve Winnona Park’s back playground. After we raised $12,000 for the playground through the Fund-a-Need portion of the Spring Auction in March, the Playground Committee surveyed staff, students, and parents to ask what they would like to see in a new playground and visited popular playgrounds in our area to generate a vision. The committee used that input to create a playground “look book” that was submitted to CSD for use in requesting bids from approved vendors. CSD is currently in the process of soliciting bids for this project. We will provide another update as soon as we know more.
The PTA would also like to thank the Winnona Park Neighborhood Association for its generous $500 donation to the playground project!
