PTA Project Playground
"Play is often talked about if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play IS serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood."
- Fred Rogers
You did it! We’ve got what we need to build a much-needed third play area for our Wolf Pups! We would like to thank YOU. Because of your generosity, and the generosity of your family members and friends during our fun run programs and other, smaller fundraisers - our Wolf Pups got THIS. And they LOVE it!
December 14, 2018: The playground design and location have finally been approved by the district and the equipment is now on order. We are thrilled to share the above renderings of what will no doubt be enjoyed by TLE students for years to come. We hope installation will be complete in March/April 2019 (fingers crossed). We are so excited for our Wolf Pups and know they will be thrilled when it's ready for play. Now, on to our next project!
September 28, 2018: You did it! We’ve got what we need to build a much-needed third play area for our Wolf Pups! We can’t wait to get started planning this amazing space and will be sure to keep you updated on the design, process and installation as the project moves forward. We hope you will celebrate with us at a fun ribbon-cutting event in the future – we’ll have popsicles for all!
August 17, 2018: We’re excited to announce that we’ve received a $500 grant for our playground project from Travelers Insurance. This grant was made possible via 25 volunteer hours logged by one of our parents in service to TLE PTA. Perhaps your employer is one that does the same – check it out! Grants like these inch us closer and closer to our goal!
July 23, 2018: Thank you Action for Healthy Kids for awarding TLE PTA a $1,000 grant. $100 will be used for (TBD) in April 2019, and the remaining $900 will be set aside for this project!
April 6, 2018: We’re kicking things off by earmarking the remaining Boosterthon funds from the 2017-2018 school year toward the project. THANKS TO YOU and your families and friends, we are off to a great start with $15,000 already set aside. Boosterthon will be back in September 2018 and with your help we hope to raise the additional approximately $30,000 we will need to purchase and install a third playground.
We are accepting dedicated contributions for this project. You can donate to the Project Playground online via SchoolPay (go to Nonprofit Groups, and then you can select Project Playground from there,) or send donation in with your child to school (please make sure to address payment to TLE PTA, and note that it is for Project Playground.)
No contribution is too small, and we are thankful for your contribution! All funds for Project Playground are held in a separate, interest-bearing account until purchase and installation. Timber Lakes PTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and we will be happy to provide you a tax-exempt letter upon request.
