BROCKTON--Miracle Playground Equipment Company has announced the Kennedy School is the winner of its first-ever Miracle Playground Giveaway Contest and because of an overwhelming show of support, the Kennedy Elementary School will receive a brand-new $25,000 play structure that boasts monkey bars, three slides and a rock-climbing wall.
The Kennedy PTA is still raising funds to install a rubber surface to go underneath the play structure.
The school’s current playground consists of rusted swings and other equipment installed when the building opened in 1965 – equipment that is so unsafe and out-of-date that the children are not allowed to use it.
The Kennedy and more than 150 schools nationwide entered the Miracle Playground Equipment Company’s online contest. Playground Committee Chairs Jennifer Giannaros and Joanna Silverman submitted a picture of the current playground and a narrative of why the Kennedy is deserving of a new playground.
