“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning.  But for children, play is serious learning.  Play is really the work of childhood.” – Mr. Rogers


Dear Central School Families,

“How was school today?”  When you ask this of your child, how often does his or her answer involve something that happened on the playground?  Play is an integral part of a child’s day at school, and an updated Central School playground would be an asset to our children and to the entire community.

For the past year, Central School’s Playground Committee worked with the Haddonfield Board of Education, playground vendors, and landscape engineers to design a playground that is safe, inviting, ADA compliant, and appropriate for children of all ages.  It is a big project, but we are nearly there!

The Haddonfield School District has agreed to remove the existing playground, regrade and expand the space, fence in the entire lot so that the children are safe from blacktop traffic, and fill our playground with natural mulch.  This portion of the project will be covered by the District.

Our PTA is responsible for the playground equipment and installation, which are costly.  However, thanks to previous fundraising, we are only $30,000 away from turning concept into reality.  We hope that these last few weeks of school and our annual Spring Social will serve as a last and final fundraising effort.

We are asking for 100% participation in this effort.  All of our children will benefit from this new playground and it will be a great feeling to know that you played a part in making it happen.

Making a leadership gift is a wonderful and lasting way to help out.  Those community members or businesses who invest $250 or more will have the opportunity to have their name displayed on a permanent donor recognition board - a permanent, on-site monument that will recognize the philanthropic spirit of our community.

If you have questions about your gift, please contact Lauren Farrell at lauren.s.farrell@gmail.com.  If you'd like to see other options for giving, please go to www.centralpta.org.

Thank you so much for your generosity and support!
