The Thayer Elementary School recently received new playground equipment. It was opened on the 16th of November. Jason Andrews, Thayer’s elementary principal said the school board and superintendent decided that the elementary finally needed some advancements on the playground. “Most of the playground equipment that we were using was actually transported from the old elementary school on 6th Street, so we obviously needed to make some updates,” said Andrews.

“It took longer than expected for our order to be completed however, after we received the equipment the installation process went quickly.  We considered asking volunteers to help install the equipment but, after reading the installation manual and observing the amount of digging and concrete that was needed, we chose to have it professionally installed.  We chose Roger Foley’s construction company and they were wonderful to work with,” Andrews said.

The elementary also installed a new swing set however, they are waiting to receive some of the seats. “I am hopeful the new swing set will be open when we return from Thanksgiving Break,” said Andrews.

“The students watched the installation process from start to finish, so you can only imagine how eager they were to finally get to play on the equipment.  I believe this equipment will last for years to come and I am optimistic that our students will benefit from the physical activity they will receive. I would also like to thank Mr. Orf and the Vo-Ag students for removing some of the older pieces of equipment,” Andrews said.
