Family Center Community Celebrates New Playground

Family Center students, parents, staff, alumni and community members gathered on Thursday, Oct. 11, to celebrate the completion of phase one of the school’s new playground. Families enjoyed a picnic dinner and popsicles while taking advantage of the playing opportunities afforded by the new playground equipment.

A special ceremony at the event honored all of the organizations and individuals whose donations made the playground project possible, including the Opus Foundation, the Clayton Century Foundation, the Staenberg Family Foundation, the City of Clayton, the School District of Clayton and Family Center families and friends. The development of the playground was truly a community effort, and the event provided a way to celebrate the community’s combined efforts on behalf of children at the Family Center and in the Clayton community.
