Community Built Playground

Community Build Playgrounds. They were two of several parent and grandparent volunteers helping to finish up the new play area especially designed for the younger students.

Parents Help Build Playground at Mayfield Elementary

Several parent and grandparent volunteers recently helped complete a custom-designed play structure on the front playground at Mayfield Elementary School between Slidell and Lacombe.

The project was funded by a $15,000 “Let’s Play” community construction grant from the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group and coordinated by KaBoom!, a national non-profit organization that has a goal of building a playground within walking distance of every child in America.

PTA members helped coordinate the event when volunteers came in to help finish the project that had been started by a playground contractor. Construction began on Wednesday, April 17, and wrapped up on Friday. A ribbon cutting is planned for Wednesday, April 24, at 12:30 p.m.

The playground features three slides, a climbing rock wall, ladders, bridges, tunnels, bongo drums, and a large bear figure that ties in with the school’s mascot, the Black Bear.

Ms. Phyllis Noveh, a pre-kindergarten teacher, wrote the application for the Kaboom community build grant, and the three pre-school teachers at Mayfield Elementary came up with the design of the playground. They made certain that it met the needs of all the children, with adaptations made for special needs children in PEI classes.

“All children learn best through play, and it will help to have a playground for them near their classrooms,” Ms. Noveh said.

The volunteers have been a great help, she stated, and the school appreciates all the help from the local community, including donations of yard tools from Home Depot.

Pro Basketball Player Brian Roberts, two Hornets cheerleaders, and Hugo of the New Orleans Hornets visited students at Mayfield Elementary Thursday, November 8, as part of the Shell Oil Co. “Reading Rally.” Books were distributed to students from the Hornets/Shell Oil Bookmobile, and then students were entertained by Roberts reading two books from the stage of the auditorium while Hugo acted out the parts on the floor, with students helping him out. Following the assembly, Shell Oil volunteers visited different classrooms to talk about the importance of reading.
