GFCC Playground Renovation: Foundation Forward Campaign

Dear GFCC Families and Community,

What is your child doing when he/she plays outside? She's building a new road in our sandbox. He's swinging from a castle tower to defeat a dragon. They are scooping and selling ice cream to each other, paying with leaves and small rocks. Climb. Run. Swing. Slide. Dig. Share. Wait. Ask. Imagine. Create.

Children "exercise" best through active play and our playground space is a daily, favorite part of their GFCC experience. Weather permitting, all of our students utilize the playground for at least 30 minutes each day -- which means GFCC provides half of the American Academy of Pediatrics' recommended 60 minutes of daily active play.

For two years, GFCC has been fundraising to improve and expand our playground facilities. Our efforts have raised approximately 20% of the funds needed to make the desired playground improvements and installations. With our Foundation Forward campaign, we are hopeful our current and former preschool students can help us make a large jump toward our $20,000 goal.

If GFCC has positively impacted your child,

please consider donating to the playground renovation.
