Beautiful new playground!

Our new playground officially opened at the start of the 2018-2019 school year. It is a great area for students to have gym classes, outdoor classes, and after school activities.

Image above is of the groundbreaking for the new playground.

In 2016, RFK Principal, Tara Mrwik, secured a grant for a multi-million dollar; complete renovation of the school's playground/school yard. The grant helped to provide the school and it's community with a beautiful state-of-the-art space to enjoy many activities. With 3 new basketball hoops, a 75 x 80 turf field, handball court, running track, tennis/volleyball court along with other fun things to do. In addition to all the interactive aspects of the park, the playground is Eco-friendly. There is a living gazebo, numerous trees and two gardens. The playground also is designed to drain rainwater directly into the cities' water table helping to replenish the cities' natural water resources.
