Playground Project

playgroundThe Shipley’s Choice Playground Project is moving forward!  The recent AACPS budget provides funding for the school playground, allowing PTA to spend the money raised by the Playground Committee (approx. $54,000) on enhancements and additions to those structures.  We are seeking input into what the SC community would like to see included in our play area.  Note that due to liability and safety guidelines, playground equipment on school grounds may not have moving parts (for example: swings, see-saws, or merry-go-rounds).
