Dear Clinton Parents/Guardians:
During the 2014-15 school year we began a Clinton playground walking path fund drive. I am pleased to inform our school community of the project’s approval. Clinton students initiated the project by collecting $1350 through two Change for Change fund raising efforts. Our current overall total is $23,660. This amount is slightly below our target but the LPS Facilities and Maintenance Department has indicated they will cover the remaining amount and move the project forward.
The eventual plan is for the concrete walking path to be located around the perimeter of the playground, just inside the fence. The route layout will take advantage of the current playground landscaping design. And, future landscaping will be incorporated into the plan as a second phase to this project.
The walking path will be a great recreational addition for Clinton students and neighborhood residents. Plus, the path will contribute to the beauty of the Clinton building and campus. Clinton students, families and staff are grateful for the generous donations provided by numerous individuals and businesses.
Terry Neddenriep, Principal, Clinton Elementary School
