The playground at Pathfinder K-8 is in need of a makeover and through a Department of Neighborhoods grant they are able to begin the process. But it's going to be a community effort. To make that happen they need your input and later, possibly some of your time. Fill out their short survey to say what you'd like to see there that best serves the community.

Pathfinder K-8 will rebuild their playground with grant money and your help

Pathfinder K8 has won a Neighborhood Matching Fund Small and Simple Grant to rebuild their playground.

The $25,000 will help the organizers get started by hiring a designer, and recruiting volunteers to match the funds through donated time. Their plan includes hosting 3 public meetings to develop the playground in a way that best serves you, the school and community. It was originally built to serve the needs of an elementary school but now that it's being used by a larger student body it no longer meets their needs.

They offered "a huge thank you to Seattle Department of Neighborhoods for helping our community work together to build a better playground."

If you'd like to help the project you are asked to first take a brief survey. Anyone who uses the playground is encouraged to participate. Tell them what matters to you at the Pathfinder K8 Playground by filling out the short online survey: http://bit.ly/1i4sxN9 .

The school is located at 1901 SW Genesee St. Seattle, WA 98106. Call them at (206) 252-9710
