Julia Randall Elementary (J.R.E.) school is moving forward on the finishing stages of the playground renovation for grades 1-3. Completion of this area should occur during summer break. This would not have been possible without the generous donations from the Kiwanis Club of Zane Grey, Energy West and Wal-Mart, along with the efforts of the J.R.E. teachers, staff, students and Parent Teacher Organization (P.T.O.) participants in our continuing fundraisers.
The final additions to our upper playground area will include two large climbing structures and a student garden for grades 1-5. We look forward to starting the grades 4-5 playground renovation beginning in the 2003-2004 school year and are very grateful to have the support of the Payson community businesses, organizations and residents. Thanks to you all!
Mary McMullen, J.R.E. P.T.O.
