On Aug. 4, over 40 staff, parents, students, PTSO members and community members volunteered their time to install new playground equipment at Ogema Elementary School.

Over the course of two years, local fundraising efforts raised over $35,000.

A few of the items in the new playground area include a rock climbing section, slides, and a spinomy.

Ogema Elementary is thankful to everyone who helped from start to finish with planning, working at the fundraising events, picking out equipment, and installation.
