Help us play it forward with an up-to-date playground that will serve our kids for years to come.

The Atkinson Elementary PTO raises funds each year for needed teaching supplies and programs to enhance learning. After parent and student surveys, the PTO identified playground improvements as the fundraising goal for the next two to three years. There are currently two playgrounds at Atkinson: a K-2 and 3-5 playground designed to provide appropriate play for each grade level. After many years of love and use, the playgrounds are now in need of improvement. The PTO, staff, and students have identified the following items that would make the playground safer, more enjoyable, and more sustainable for years to come. We invite you to review the list and make a commitment to our kids and their active learning. There are naming opportunities depending on your interest and contribution.
