GOCO Grant Completion

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Orchard Ave. staff, students and community leaders gathered on November 9th for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate completion

of the GOCO grant.

A school playground can be the closest and safest place to play in a community, but often times the playgrounds are outdated and

the equipment is unsafe. Improvements to school playgrounds and outdoor spaces not only create a more engaging and creative environment for students, but they also serve the greater community.  This became a project based learning experience whereby a group of our students along with input from all students, staff, and families designed this new playground

In the spring of 2017, our school was granted the Great Outdoors Colorado grant for $110,000 and in the fall of 2019 we saw the completion of this design with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.  During this ceremony, we ‘unveiled’ the newest playground structure named ‘THE DOME.’
