Phoenix Advantage Charter School

RECEIVES LOWE’S TOOLBOX FOR EDUCATION GRANT FOR the PACS Play Ground

$5,000 will provide funding for the Playground Rehabilitation Project

 

Phoenix, AZ – The Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation has awarded a $5,000 Lowe’s Toolbox for Education® grant to Phoenix Advantage Charter School in Phoenix for renovation of their school playground Phoenix Advantage Charter School is one of more than 600 schools across the United States to be awarded a Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant this spring for improvement projects during the 2013-2014 school year.

The vision is for a “park-like” playground for the students, an environment where safety is paramount. The current playground area is sufficient in scale for the number of students enrolled; however, it is primarily a dirt playground.  Transforming the playground to a grassy area will be much cooler when the temperatures rise in the area as well as a much cleaner area for play.
