How Playground Project Began

The playground project began when a group of teachers hosted a prom for the exceptional high school students. The playful spirit of these grateful teenagers and their kind and positive attitudes impacted the volunteers profoundly. One could not help to notice how unconditionally kind and grateful these exceptional teenagers are, despite the daily challenges they face that most of us cannot begin to imagine. Their challenges are mild to severe and are physical, emotional, cognitive and/or medical. The prom experience inspired third grade teacher Tammy Zofka Tomasello to begin the “Playground Project”. This project captures the playful spirit and love of life expressed by these children. Although the playground will include adaptive equipment, it is for children with and without disabilities throughout our community.
