Recess is their favorite!

Wayne Elementary School’s existing secondary playground -- the larger playground behind the school -- is over 30 years old. The equipment is outdated and does not engage the students - just ask your kids. The photo to the left is our current playground, unused at recess on a beautiful spring day. Additionally, it's inaccessible for children with physical disabilities. 


Proposed Plan

 New Secondary Playground

New Secondary Playground

The PTO, in partnership with WES administrators and team, wants to replace the existing secondary playground over the coming 2019 summer.  What a wonderful way for our children to start the 2019-2020 school year!

The proposed plan for the new secondary playground will surpass several ADAAG Conformance requirements, making the area more accessible to students with disabilities.

Required accessible routes = 7 (proposed plan has 8)

Required ground level play components = 4 (proposed plan has 7)
