I am very excited for my children and their friends to return to Oceanside Elementary school this fall.
Last year was a year of big changes with the closure of many elementary schools and the shift of those elementary aged children to schools that had previously been designed for middle school years.
This year, our children will arrive to see the first phase of their outdoor play space. This outdoor space is going to serve not only as a play space for all the children but also as an outdoor classroom area.
This would not have been possible without the many volunteers who have been donating time and materials this summer. The many parents and local businesses that have been donating time and materials is making a real difference at this school.
I would like to send out a big thank you to Tim Kroeker (Kroeker Homes), Ian Todd (Copcan Civil), Rebecca and Jay Sharp (The Sharp Design Landscape Group), Graeme Carleton (Mayco Mix) and Elaine McCullough in particular.
These parents have spent a lot of evenings and every weekend this last month out there working on getting this play space ready for the new school year. Thank you.
