Parliament hosted a ribbon-cutting for its new state-of-the-art playground on the first day of school, Sept. 5. The ribbon-cutting commemorated the five elementary schools in the district that will be opening brand new playgrounds for 2018-2019 school year.

Attending the ceremony was Parliament Principal Drew Olson, Superintendent of Schools Glen Eschbach, Assistant Superintendent for Personnel and Educational Operations Barbara Butler, Board of Education trustee John Schneidawin, and fifth-grade students from Staci Manning, Gregg Morisie and Dave Heins’ classes. 

The fifth-graders had the privilege of being the first students to experience the exciting new grounds, which consisted of six swings, slides, monkey bars and more.

Along with Parliament, other elementary schools in the district that will have new state-of-the-art playgrounds are Woods Road, William E. DeLuca, Marion G. Vedder and Belmont. This is part of the district’s capital improvement project. All playgrounds will officially open Sept. 9.
