ECP Parents & Friends Work Party

Kindergarten Playground Gets an Upgrade!


oak-grove-school-kindergarten-workday-1 The Kindergarten had a very successful work day the other Saturday. It became an ECP supported project with additional help from the Pre-school 2-day, 3-day and 5-day classes, as well as Dass' husband Pete, Vashti's husband Mike, Jodi's husband Kevin and Meredy's husband Dennis. OGS Developmet Director Jodi made delicious coffee cake and Juanita prepared a wonderful array of salads, appetizers, pizza and drinks. Our ECP teachers also supported our efforts - Vashti, Darinka, Dass and Marga. This was truly a community event, and served as a reminder of what a wonderful community we are so fortunate to be a part of!

This project would not have been possible without the generous donations from Mike and Michelle Murray-Nelson, Jen Armetta, Randy and Kasia Leavitt and Dines and Lila Francese. Oak Grove funded the sand and Rei from Maintenance and his crew did all the incredible preliminary work.

oak-grove-school-kindergarten-workday-2We are thrilled to report as of early February the sand has been delivered, and we are looking forward to our last work day and completing this project for our kids to enjoy! This has been set for Saturday February 13th from 9:00 until 12:00 pm. Our children are so excited to try out this new equipment made possible by the generosity of our community members -both in work and spirit! Thank you to everyone involved and most especially to Beth and Greg Lyons who have spear headed the effort above and beyond expectations.
