FOND DU LAC, WI (MAY 14, 2012) – The sight of the new play area at James Sales Elementary School produced a simple yet powerful response from the students that helped create it recently— “It is so beautiful,” they exclaimed.

Principal Kristen Schroeder beamed with pride and excitement as the playground, designed and installed by BCI Burke professional playground representative Buell Recreation and landscape architect firm Jeff B. Glander & Associates, took shape with students, community members and parents lending support throughout the process.

Monies for the project were part of a dramatic reveal by the Ellen DeGeneres Show and Target Corporation in January that the school would receive a grant to improve active, creative, and constructive activities at the school and improve positive family traffic on our playground after hours, according to Schroeder.
