James Burd Elementary School has announced the date of its community installation for its new and improved playground. Thursday, Aug. 8, has been reserved as the morning and afternoon for the James Burd Community Playground Build, a time in which volunteers will help assemble new playground equipment. The new equipment will replace equipment that is between 15 and 25 years old.

“This will be exemplary of what a team can do when they work together,” said Principal Scott Shapiro. “We welcome any and all volunteers, whether it be for 30 minutes or the whole day.”
