A generous $30,000 gift from Drs. Arnoldo and Neva Hax purchased play equipment for the school’s outdoor educational and play environments. Climbers, spinners, and a new sandbox combine with natural wood play structures to make MSD’s grounds a seamless extension of Montessori learning for all our students. The Vista Fleet also contributed $3,500 for an attractive new wood fence, and raised beds for the children to plant flowers and vegetables.
Many thanks to the parent volunteers who contributed their labor to this project. This was the second of three steps in MSD’s outdoor renewal plan, spearheaded by the Building and Grounds Committee. The first was the redesign of the school’s greenspaces and parking lot, and the last was adding a solar installation to the school’s roof.
