CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, November 27 - December 3, 1998 - 47 Cape school board approves RES playground; special recognitions bestowed RehobothElementary School raised through local public and was honored by the Delaware Hemps and Brian Ruddy. Christo- work titled "MS through the Eyes PTA member JoAnn Woodruff won school board approval Thurs- day, Nov. 19, for her group's plans to create a new and im- proved playground at the elemen- tary school, but she was denied a request for a $10,000 school dis- trict contribution toward the ef- fort. The school district had com- mitted $2,500 to the project earlier this year for removing old equip- ment from the site, but noted that the tight operating budget this fall prevents a larger donation at this time. Board members also pointed out that playground improvement projects conductedat Shields and H.O. Brittingham elementary schools in recent yeats did not get district funding. Money was private donations and fundraising activities at those schools, and board members said playground planners at RES should pursue those efforts. Woodruff noted that Rehoboth Elementary School's PTA has donated $7,500 toward the equipment, which she said is very durable, attractive and safe. With a three-pod satellite play- ground planned of Game Time brand equipment costing about $40,000, Woodruff said the PTA needed some financial help. The board voted unanimously "for Re- hoboth Elementary School PTA to proceed with whatever they have to do to work toward a new play- ground."
