"Mommy, why did they take away all the trees? I like nature and nature isn't good without trees. And, they weren't even theirs."
Mark, grade 2

Our children have already lost much of their green space. The schoolyard is dominated by dust and concrete.

Now our Kindergarten students are about to lose their play structure, which is nearing the end of its 25-year life span. The School Board does not replace play structures so, unless we do something, it will simply be removed.

Please help us save our children’s schoolyard.
