New Playground Dedicated at Wahl-Coates

After several years of grant writing and fund raising, the new playground equipment has finally been installed over at Wahl-Coates Elementary School of the Arts! The much needed equipment includes an all-inclusive playground space, complete with ramp access and a wheel chair accessible swing. The playgrounds were officially dedicated on May 14, 2019 with a special ribbon cutting ceremony. Students, teachers, school board members, members from St. James and C4C, along with members from the community and Cypress Glen were among those who were invited to participate in the special ribbon cutting ceremony. Wahl-Coates Elementary School of the Arts was a 2018 Spring Fling recipient which helped fund the much needed playgounds. The students are already putting them to good use, and we are excited that they will have a fun and safe place to play for many years to come!
