Last Friday, Pete Mirich Elementary School in La Salle held a ribbon cutting ceremony and officially opened the new All Abilities, All Ages Playground and Frisbee Golf Course. A grant from Colorado Health Foundations’ Healthy Schools and Intergenerational Physical Activity Funding along with Weld Re-1 resources made this great project possible. During the ceremony, Superintendent van Nieuwenhuizen recognized and gave special thanks to all of our community partners that helped make this possible:
The Colorado Health Foundation
Northern Colorado Health Alliance
PMES Principal Mark Andrews
NCHA Healthy Schools Wellness Coordinator Annie Baker and Tany Trujillo
PMES Parent Teacher Organization
PTO President Jessica Cooley & family
The Dudley family
Weld RE-1 staff members John Reid, Amber Peterson, Jennifer Rauch
The Weld Re-1 Board of Education
The Town of LaSalle
Playground Contractors Jen and David VanWormer with Go Play
The ADA inclusive playground will be open to the public during non-school hours and includes: shaded swings; musical chimes; instructional panels, including a sign language chart; a ninja warrior course; a ramped, fully inclusive play structure; a disc golf course and more.
