Outdoor play and learning is an important piece of a healthy lifestyle and well-rounded educational experience. A few years ago, parents and the community joined forces to raise the funds for the playground equipment which is loved by our children. The joy and laughter we hear each day at recess and during pick-ups makes all that hard work worth it. But with additional underutilized space on the Northeast playground, we know there is more we can do to provide a safe outdoor space for our children.
Thanks to the support of community partners and families like yours, over the last nine years, we have raised funds to build our kids their dream playground, enhance our amazing but outdated auditorium, and improve our school kitchen so our kids can have freshly-prepared meals. Now we need your support to improve our outdoor activity space and add a new artificial turf, open play yard and walking path for our children to enhance their physical activity without fear of injury.
Please consider a gift to Friends of Thorp on Giving Tuesday, November 30, 2021. As individuals around the world come together on this global day of giving to share their generosity, we need your help here in our Thorp community! Your gift of $10, $20 or more will make a great impact toward our goals to enhance the school campus with improved outdoor learning space in 2022.
