Looking Back...

It is hard to believe that 202 days have passed since our "Playground Build Day." The smiles seen and the spirit felt on that day continue to be seen and felt every time we pass the playground and see children and families gathering together there. Today is a day to look back and reflect. Tomorrow, April 20th, marks a special moment in the history of Acreman Elementary. It was on this date last year that the students and community members sat in anticipation waiting for the big news! "ACREMAN WON A PLAYGROUND AWARD!!!" Now, here we are, a year later, with so much more than a playground! Yes, we have an outdoor classroom, a peace garden, soccer field and labyrinth...but what we have, is more than that. It's the sense of unity, community spirit and the certainty that anything is possible if we work together!
Today, the day before the actual "Announcement Anniversary", students at Acreman will watch our Build Day video and be reminded of what an amazing day it was! Join us by clicking on the link below. It is sure to put a smile on your face.
