School to Host Ribbon Cutting for New Playground

Garden City Achieve (1312 N. Main Street) will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, September 18 for their new playground area and the equipment. The new playground sits on the south side of the school building.

The new playground, designed for children from five to 12 years old, includes a slide and many climbing structures. The playground equipment is designed to build motor skills, cognitive skills and social-emotional skills through sensory play. The area around the playground equipment has a soft artificial turfed surface to ensure safety for the developmentally appropriate jungle gym for young learners.

“This new playground is a very welcome addition to our school and for the students we serve,” said Lucas Sullivan, GC Achieve principal. “We are grateful for the support from the Board of Education and the school district for making this a reality at our school.”

Garden City Achieve provides instruction for students from ninth rough 12th grades. The facility also houses the district’s Therapeutic Education Program and the Virtual Academy.
