We Love Our New Playground!

We Love Our New Playground!
Posted on 04/07/2017

Students have been eagerly awaiting this day for over a year! Our newly renovated playground, which passed inspection and was dedicated on April 1, is now open to students for the very first time!

In addition to a brand new play structure, there is an outdoor classroom space called the "construction zone," a "tire dragon," and a "book nook" dedicated to a community member who passed away last year.

Barnardsville is a very tight-knit community and there are families that have lived here for generations. It was important that we make our playground a place where people could come together.

With the leadership and help of the Barnardsville PTO, the school raised about $40,000 for the effort. It truly was a community effort, with a number of valued community partners coming together to get their hands dirty and make the dream a reality.
