Delaware elementary school recieves new playground


SELBYVILLE, Del. –  A local elementary school in Delaware is getting a helping hand to renovate its playground.

The Phillip C. Showell Elementary School in Selbyville is getting 100-thousand dollars and volunteers for new equipment for the playground. It’s part of a grant from Lowe’s 100 Hometowns project, which a PTA member nominated the school for. The money will to building new jungle gyms, monkey bars, a rock wall, and handicap accessible swingsets.

The school principal tells us it wouldn’t be possible without the grant, and help from Lowe’s.

“We do not have a huge budget for playground equipment so for us to fundraise it was going to take several years so this grant is a huge blessing and allowed us to purchase all new equipment, in a short amount of time,” said Phillip C Shower Elementary Principal Christy Kerr.

Kerr says the playground will be fully renovated and open on October 30th.
