Exciting News for our Playground!

Contributed by Daxon Kindred, Grade 4 Student Council Representative:

Student Council earned enough money to get two park benches for our playground. Last year the Student Council decided they wanted to use the money that was earned from Candy Gram and Lip Sucker sales to buy benches. We really didn’t have anywhere to just chillax (chill + relax). Also what is really cool about the benches is that they are recycled. We bought them from the Council Bluffs Recycling Center. So we wanted to say thanks to every who bought something last year — so they are pretty much everybody’s benches! So very cool news we got these benches as a school!

Benches

 

Pictured on one of our new benches are some of Hoover’s Student Council Representatives.  Under the guidance of their sponsor, Mrs. Kocina, they provide great leadership for our student body.
