The Play! Paxson Updates Project has taken place in phases. Phase one includes the updates you see today. The wonderful asphalt painting that encourages activity. Vibrant colors were chosen for the 4-square, maze, activity lines and classroom lines. One basketball hoop was lowered which resulted in many more students playing the sport! A fun ball-wall was erected. And a garden gate installed so a portion of the outdoor learning center could be used safely by students at recesses.
In collaboration with our PTA Safety committee and MCPS, additional updates were made including repairing fences, widening the East and West fence entryways, and relocating bus pick up and drop off zones (separating modes of transportation to increase safety for all). We thank the City of Missoula for approving the PTA Safety committees request for stop signs that were installed on the two intersections on Gerald Avenue, for repainting crosswalks, and for the installation of dry wells to collect storm water that makes the corner of Evans and Gerald useable all year round.
