In July a team of craftsmen and workers met up with the container sent us, full of playground equipment, classroom furniture and supplies!

The team hung the 70 feet of shade cloth, poured a cement bike trail and constructed several play structures for the playground. The furniture was loaded into the classrooms and the manipulatives and supplies were sorted into the cubbies.

It was 10 days of hard work for our small team but the final result was awesome!
