I have received so many positive comments on the parking lot expansion this year, and it has been so good to have that portion of the parking lot plans finished! I am also looking forward to this spring when the outside parking lot lights will be installed! Our goal is to have those completed by the time of our Spring performances, but we’ll have to see if Mother Nature cooperates with us this year to make that happen!

So now that those goals are almost complete, it is time to plan for another goal: the playground! We have been coddling some of our outside equipment for a while now, and it is time to think big! Our School Success Team (SST) will be meeting Monday, February 12th at 3:30 pm to begin planning for this goal, and we want YOU to participate! If you’d like to be part of this conversation, please come to the meeting, and give us your ideas and feedback!

One of the things that I enjoy here at CAB is that all of our students have recess daily! Even high schoolers! That’s something that many schools don’t offer, and as an educator and parent, I know that kids never get to the age where they don’t need to burn off some energy and enjoy the outdoors! As adults, we need it too!
When we’re thinking about the playground, we can’t just think about the play structure itself; as our kids grow older, what opportunities for play should they have? What plans for our outdoor space can we provide that will serve ALL of our student ages?

If you have some ideas to share, please come to the February 12th meeting! If you are unable to make the meeting, please stop in to see me or Mrs. Matelski prior to the meeting to discuss your ideas, or shoot one of us an email with them in writing. Either way, your ideas will get shared at the meeting that way.

Thank you for participating in our planning! We hope to see you there on the 12th!
