Animas Valley Elementary is building a NEW PLAYGROUND!!
Our playground and athletic fields do not currently meet the needs of our students. We are fundraising, applying for grants and working with the school district to:
1) Replace the play structures
2) Install safe and clean play surfaces
3) Level, re-seed and add new goals to the athletic fields.
4) Ensure the entire play area is FUN, handicap accessible, CPSC Compliant, & meets special needs of our students.
We are working with:
- Playground design firms to get the most competitive bid.
- A staff, parent and student advisory panel to design the play structures for maximum fun.
- Durango 9-R officials and community Parks & Recreation officials, to find additional funding and to ensure we work within guidelines upfront saving time and money.
- Go-Co to apply for any needed grants.
As of May 1, we have raised $29,000!!!
Please consider donating! We are a 501-C charity and are able to provide tax donation documentation.
