- Mary A. Hubbard School
Let Children Play
Thank you to everyone who came out to participate in the community workshop. Check back for updates on the project.
The community workshop day is October 19th from 9am - 11am.
Come play and explore at Hubbard School on Saturday, October 19th from 9am to 11am. Learning Landscape Design will be here to observe how our children play and explore to create the design for our brand new community playground on the front circle of Hubbard School.
We need your help to make this morning a success! Click here to donate items for the stations or to volunteer to help at a station that morning. Bring the whole family!
Hubbard School is the recipient of a $10, 000 grant from the Ramsey Public Education Foundation to begin the process of creating the “Let Children Play” playground. This playground will be a natural playground within the boundaries of the circle in the front of the building. This grant will support working with a developer, Learning Landscapes Design, to create a site plan and add one focal piece of equipment. Our generous parent community represented by the PTO, will contribute this year’s Gift to School of $16,000 to the project as well to complete the focal piece installation and begin phase II. Here is a link to a planning and development website for this project.
This project is a labor of love and could take multiple years to complete, but we are hoping that, with the support of the entire community, it gets completed sooner than projected!
Here's what we need:
- Parents and students interested in joining the development and installation committee. Complete this interest survey. The design will come directly from us! See Phase I of development for how you could be involved on the committee.
- Your professional expertise
- Access to businesses and resources in landscaping and design
- Connections to corporations or foundations that might be interested in contributing to this worthwhile cause
We need all stakeholders invested in our children’s well being and this is their chance to really demonstrate that commitment! This is a community project! Get everyone you know on board with the plan for development and to be hands on during the design and installation!
Thank you for taking the time to consider being a part of this wonderful opportunity!
