Thanks to all of the efforts planning and fundraising, Burr Elementary School’s new playground is set to be built on the weekend of November 7th, 8th & 9th! The Burr community came together in an amazing way last year to raise the funds needed for what will be an incredible playground.
What they need now is help from the Newton Community at large. As ambitious as they are, they are small in numbers and could use help from other PTOs and schools to get this playground out of the boxes and up in the air! The playground will be a community build… all hands on deck (Looking for volunteers 18 and older to build on Friday and Saturday, with some wrap up on Sunday).
Please take a look at the sign up form and put yourself down for some time if you can spare a few hours. Come together to the build as a group! Make it a family affair or bring the neighbors. Please pass the word along to family, friends, neighbors, Burr alums, coworkers, etc. Everyone is welcome! There are some non-building roles as well – coordinating the volunteers, handing out refreshments, etc.
There will also be babysitting available for school aged children. They can have a fun supervised playdate while you help build a new place for them to play! Email BurrPlay@gmail.com to let them know you’ll be dropping your child off.
