Pierce Elementary School hosted its inaugural “Dash for a Playground” 5K this weekend, organized by the Pierce PTO. The race took place on Saturday, October 29, and also featured raffles and refreshments.
Proceeds from the event will go toward a new playground at the school. The current playground was installed more than 20 years ago and is outdated. The school hopes to raise enough money to create a more inclusive playground that includes equipment meeting the developmental needs of all students.
