Amanda York – Mason Elementary inclusive playground
(Ms. York was joined by Katrina Bennett, the Mason PTO president).

Mason Elementary’s playground is the oldest in the District and is at the point where parts to fix the equipment are no longer available. The playground is used year-round, and the community is in need of a wheelchair accessible location. A wheelchair sidewalk is very expensive so the design is still being determined and will be finalized based on the funds raised.
The school district does not provide funding for playgrounds, so it is left to the school’s PTO. Through many fundraisers and some
generous donations, they are $12,000 from the base $250,000 needed. Installation is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2024. The ultimate goal is to raise $300,000 to include some much-needed shade structures.
