VOLUNTEERS AND DONATIONS ARE NEEDED! - ¡SE NECESITAN VOLUNTARIOS Y DONACIONES!
We are pleased to announce that Westview Elementary School will be building a new playground! Thanks to a grant with a non-for-profit organization Kaboom, and funding generously provided by Discover Financial Services, Westview students, as well as the entire school community, will enjoy a brand new playground, early in the 2019-20 school year.
Last year, students in Kindergarten-2nd grade at Oakbrook School were recipients of a new playground through the same grant program. Westview students, parents, and staff provided input during a Design Day on August 8th. Three designs were drafted by the team at Kaboom, and the Westview School Community clearly preferred Design C:
On Friday, October 4th, volunteers from throughout the Wood Dale Community will participate in building the new playground, along with volunteers from Discover Financial Services. Please sign up HERE to volunteer!
As part of the grant, District 7 will need to raise $8500 to fulfill our obligation for the project. If you are interested in making a cash donation, please click on the link below.
We are very thankful to the staff members from KaBoom!, and are so appreciative of the generous support from Discover Financial Services!
We look forward to our students using the new play equipment as well as the opportunity to celebrate community involvement through this collaborative process on behalf of children!
