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.

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).

Information on the survey results and next steps for the playground coming soon!
