Washougal school gets new playground cover
Cape Horn-Skye Booster Club spearheads effort
Tuesday, August 14, 2012
Cape Horn-Skye Elementary School’s Booster Club has spent two years raising money for a new playground cover, and now they’ve finally reached their goal.
The new cover will be ready for this coming fall, by Sept. 1, according to Tammy Connolly, the Booster Club president. The club, made up of current students' parents, originally thought it would take five years to raise the money, but parents were surprised at the school's and community's support.
"We were so thrilled," said Connolly.
The Booster Club put on two different fundraising events: its annual Sport-A-Thon and a new endeavor -- cookie dough sales. After each event, they had raised $5,000 to $6,000 for the Washougal school's booster club.
