CAPE GAZE'FFE, Friday, March 27 - April 2, 1998 - 51 Coins count for Rehoboth Elementar 5 playground fund Rosanne Pack photo "Play with this ideal" Rehoboth Elementary School stu- dents (l-r) Garrett Coco, Joe Doyle and Paris Boyer have some ideas for new playground equipment that the school is work- ing toward. Included in the projects that will raise funds for the equipment is a coin drive that was introduced at a recent school assembly. By Rosanne Pack Every penny counts when there are plans for a new playground, and students at Rehoboth Elemen- tary School are collecting their coins for the cause. The PTO has set sights on new equipment for the school play- ground and the children are all part of the project. Monday, March 2, each class got a contain- er to use for the playground coin drive; they will collect money un- til May. Other fundraisers will be conducted along the way. The students are encouraged to decorate their coin jugs and try to fill them as fast as possible. Each Friday, all the coin jugs will go to County Bank where employees have donated time to count the contents. Co-chairs of the project, Kathie Wood, Joan Gay and Joanne Woodruff met with stu- dents and explained the fundrais- ing process and asked for sugges- tions for furnishing their play- ground. The children gave an en- thusiastic cheer when they heard that new playground equipment is in their future. Their ideas includ- ed twister slides, merry-go- rounds, hopscotch and four- square courts and even a bath- room. The project co-chairs explained that the playground is very impor- tant because it not only serves Re- hoboth Elementary, but also the entire community. "This is really for everyone to use," Gay said. "It will be yours, but we will welcome the commu- nity to come and enjoy it, too." Wood said that there will be weekly winners in the coin collec- tion drive. As the numbers are tal- lied each week, classes with the highest amount of coinage will earn prize events such as video parties complete with sodas and popcorn. She said that donations are not limited to coins brought to school; those who want more in- formation or to make a contribu- tion can call her, 227-7738. Addi- tional fundraising events will be announced soon. Woodruff said that PTO mem- bers are looking at playground equipment catalogs and they will be seeking input on specific pieces as spring arrives. Ptan We Have Everything You Need!
