That was the question posed to nearly 500 students from Monument Elementary School who took out their crayons and tapped into their imagination to design their future playground on Friday, April 20th.
“Design Day” was a time for students to dream beyond the horizon, flex their creative muscles and have an immediate impact on their playspace. Student groups created a total of 18 playground designs. Classmates then voted to select the top seven. The final seven designs were displayed on a school bulletin board where over 150 parents were able to cast their vote on their favorite designs. The winning playground design will be built on August 11 by parents, students and community volunteers.
NJ Partnership for Healthy Kids – Trenton and KaBOOM, a national nonprofit dedicated to saving play for America’s children are leading the project.SHARE:
