A Playground At Woods Elementary!
More than 100 parents, children, school staff, and community leaders gathered at Woods Academy Elementary School to celebrate the new playground at this public school in the Englewood neighborhood. There has not been a playground here for more than 30 years! The COFI-trained parent team – the Seed Sowers – in partnership with COFI and Family Focus-Englewood, have campaigned for the past three years to improve opportunities for children at Woods. Now the parents hope the school will bring back recess so the children can enjoy the playground during a much-needed break in the school day. Congratulations!
