We all need a place to play – a new project will help the Tucker community make it happen.
This month the Tucker School will break ground on a play space redesign. The redesign was initiated to improve the play space that currently has few options for game play. The playground area is currently located in the parking area which the kids have turning into a make shift soccer pitch.
The project was initiated by the Tucker School Site Council last year and received significant funding from the Copeland Foundation as well as private donors and a school wide fundraiser. The project has completed the initial $25,000 of fundraising but is still in need of an additional $5,000 in funding. The Site Council has extended its donor requests to include local business and Tucker Alumni in hopes of closing the gap in advance of the build day’s mid-August.
The Tucker school represents a significant population of students that have limited local access to playspaces. The new playspace includes a state-of-the-art 40 x 70 Soccer Mini-Pitch, new landscaping, game tables, a stage for creative play, and many places to sit, eat and come together.
Elaine Mcneil-Girmai said of the project, “It is amazing how quickly the Milton community comes together to support good projects. I think that this project is innovative and will show the Tucker community how special they are to all of Milton.”
