In With The New

By | Sports
SARATOGA SPRINGS – On Monday, October 24 St. Clement’s Regional Catholic School held a ribbon cutting ceremony and blessing to unveil new playground equipment. Exercise on a playground provides significant physical and connotative benefits. It can ultimately lead to students becoming more attentive in the classroom. Acknowledging this notion, St. Clement’s used proceeds from this past May’s Spring Ball to support the playground’s development. Lead donors from The Spring Ball were the Prime Group Mid-Atlantic and the Apy Family. Back in June, students in grades K-5 received a homework assignment to sketch their ideal playground. A committee of parent volunteers reviewed all of the drawings. Over the past four months they have gathered quotes and proposals from various companies to bring this dream into fruition. This past summer volunteers power-washed existing equipment, removed equipment that no longer met safety requirements, and cleared the grounds to make room for additional equipment. All of the hard work concluded on Friday, October 14 and Saturday, October 15 as members of the Skidmore College Men’s Basketball team along with twenty parent volunteers installed five new pieces under the experienced direction of Parkitects, Inc. The company graciously donated their installation services to help cover costs for the school. Landscape Structures’ Lunar Burst Net Climber, Cozy Dome, OmniSpin Spinner, Talk Tubes, and Zip Kroonz made tremendous additions to the already-existing equipment. The finished product will allow for age-appropriate fun for all St. Clement’s students. Reverend George Blasick, C.Ss.R. Pastor of St. Clement’s Church was in attendance, along with Jane E. Kromm, Principal, St. Clement’s Regional Catholic School.
