Parkview Elementary student Kash Skibo points out the different features in the model playground he helped to create for the school’s first Maker Day on Thursday, April 14. Students from different grades were teamed up to dream up their ideal inclusive playground. The results, including various slides, swings and rope climbing features, were noted by students, parents and other guests of the school, and may influence additional equipment purchases for the school’s future playground.

Other photos include: Carson Oysrtyck points out his zip line; Aspyn Dupuis and Makayla Kraft are impressed with a rainbow slide; Angeline Patrick checks out other students’ creations; Kobe Brigman shows his contributions; and Anika Kennedy tells Jegan Holmes-Perera about the different elements in her group’s playground.
