Dunbarton Elementary School
Dunbarton Elementary School extends a huge "THANK YOU" to the whole town for supporting the school renovation!
We are very happy to announce that the new playground at Dunbarton Elementary School is ready to go for active play!! A huge THANK YOU to the O'Donnelll Insurance Agency of Concord and Manchester for the grant they awarded DES to purchase new playground equipment. We must thank Dan and Michelle Morin and the entire Morin Contracting Services Team for doing an unbelievable job in leading us in this effort, giving their time, machinery, effort, and expertise to this project. They assembled a small army of parent and community volunteers to help with the project.
The Dunbarton PTO will cover all of the extra material costs (perforated pipe, stone, wood chips, etc), which Dan has been tracking. Thank you Dunbarton PTO! Jeff Crosby gave his time and use of his truck while the town provided approximately 50 yards of sand for the site. Woody Bowne and his dedicated staff removed all of the old structures including hundreds of pounds of concrete and steel, which was a significant part of this project.
The PTO’s generous offer, along with the donated time of our volunteers, the donated craftsmanship and equipment of Morin Contracting Services and the two playground grants, means there will be very little cost to the Dunbarton taxpayer. The next step will be to install two more playground pieces when they arrive sometime in October, one will be placed next to the new structure, adjacent to the Gaga Pit, where we have already prepped the site. The other site is TBD.
Cheers to a another great year at DES and to our wonderful community!
