Simpson Elementary School, in Ringgold, GA, supports a Special Education population of 151. Of that number, five classes are Pre-Kindergarten ages 3-5, serving developmental, intellectual and physical disabilities.
Our current play area for these students, needs enhancements to accommodate their specific disabilites. Throughout the '16-'17 school year, a team of teachers and administrators have obtained an appropriate space and designed a playground for all of our young 3,4 and 5 year old children, including a wheelchair accessible path with a variety of interactive panels along the way. The cost of this much needed space is $55,000.
The power of play can not be underestimated. This new playground will provide a space that promotes social interaction and motor strength through sensory stimulation, a space designed to meet childrens' needs and a space to help each child grow both mentally and physically. All donations will go directly toward creating this play space.
At Simpson Elementary, we want to embrace our differences and create learning environments for all children. Please consider helping us reach this goal! With each passing day, these children miss the opportunity to expand their world and have fun outdoors like any other child.
Our little Superstars are waiting for you!
