Project Overview

Our goal is to raise funds to purchase new playground equipment for the Clearwater Elementary School campus in Piedmont. Our initial goal is to raise $25,000 to help kickstart this project. We will also be applying for grants to help with this project and hope to be eligible for some funds thru matching grant opportunities.  

Outdoor play is crucial in the development of children. According to a UMKC report, "many of the fundamental tasks that children must achieve, such as exploring, risk-taking, fine and gross motor development, and the absorption of vast amounts of basic knowledge, can be most effectively learned through outdoor play." In addition, the American Academy of Pediatrics states that recess is "a crucial and necessary component of a child's development."  

Note: The pictures provided are not the exact playground equipment to be purchased. The exact features and style will be determined at a later date once we know how much funding is available.

About Clearwater School Foundation

The goal of the Clearwater School foundation is to promote the educational excellence in the Clearwater School system by generating resources from private funds to improve facilities, equipment, and programs for the benefit of the students. New innovative ways to supplement students' education are necessary. Our goal is to help ensure our students have every possible advantage we can give them to learn and to prepare for their future.

Since our start in 2015, we have been able to help fund many exciting projects within Clearwater School! We have been able to help offset costs associated with competition for our robotics team; contribute to the curriculum for Engineering By Design; help fund cordless microphones, furniture, and props for the drama club; purchase new lighting for the stage at the elementary to be used in various events and to be enjoyed by students, teachers, parents, and grandparents; fund a welcome-back teacher luncheon; provide benches for the elementary school playground; purchase video production equipment; provide a stereo receiver for the music department; and fund Breakout EDU boxes to promote critical thinking, teamwork, and problem solving in an exciting way!
