Students and their families lined up Thursday, Nov. 3, 2022, to help Warren City Schools staff cut the ribbon at the new preschool playground at Warren G. Harding High School.
The new playground is part of the district’s ongoing mission to provide equity and access to all students from preschool through 12th grade.
“The district saw the need for the preschool at Harding to have a playground to meet the needs of the whole child,” said Kelly Hutchison, the district’s preschool coordinator. “We are happy to see the joy that the playground provides while tending to the health and wellness of our early learners.”
The district’s 5-Star, state-rated preschool program serves over 300 students at five sites, including two classrooms at Harding.
The school district began looking at construction proposals in the spring of 2022. The materials were delivered to the district on Wednesday, Oct. 26, and the project was completed by Saturday, Oct. 29, 2022.
