Kaboom Announcement

Westview is Getting a New Playground! 

Kaboom

We are excited 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.  Children in the intermediate grades will now experience the excitement of providing input on the new playground’s design in early August.  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.  

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!
