**Update 4/19/18** - First, the bad news...After submitting our proposal to the school district, the most expensive item (climbing rock) was rejected for safety reasons.  Now, the good news - We have added 2 other small pieces of equipment (the pictures below are the updated equipment).  With all of that said, we now are looking at a total cost of $18,000 instead of the original $30K. So we're almost half-way there!  Here's the new break-down of costs:

4 pieces of equipment + deliver + installation: $11600
GagaBall Set                                                   $  4000
Bark Chips/Surfacing around equipment           $  1000
Paint/plants/other unforeseen costs                 $ 1400     

Our goal is to earn $30000 $18,000 in order to add 1 large piece of equipment, plus a few several small pieces of equipment.  We believe this will help spread the kids out more on the playground.  The display case between the office and the cafeteria shows the different options that we are trying to save money for.  As our school district has continued to grow - our playground has not. We are in desperate need of more equipment for the children to play on.

As we have events/fundraisers, every time our profit is above what we budgeted (or any time we spend less than we budgeted), the difference will go toward the playground equipment goal.  Plus, we will have a few fundraisers dedicated to raising playground funds (such as the Civil War Penny Drive we just completed).

Here's how things are going.....
